colander – 2010

 

Polaroid Type 669 positive film

 

For some reason, when I was around 5 or 6  years old, I started having  dreams

about being very small and being trapped under colanders, cheese graters and other kitchen paraphernalia.

The scale and size of things in the dreams was all out of whack. In the dreams I was always 

about an inch high but everything else was normal size. To this day, I still don’t know why I had those odd but 

exhilarating dreams.

They stopped after a short time, but stayed with me.

I’ve recreated some of them by using a pinhole camera and Polaroid type 669 film.

 

On most of the images in the series, I used one tungsten light and one LED work light, and I exposed the now discontinued Polaroid peel apart film at f 364 for 3-5 minutes.

Like a lot of photographers I miss 669.  I really liked the unusual effects that could happen when you peeled apart 

the film after development or the cool things that could happen to the print when you distressed the film during 

development. Each print was truly one of a kind.

Pushing  on the film with the palm of my hand created the look of flames in the colander image above.

 

669 is long gone but you can still get a similar peel apart film made by Fuji called FP-100C.
