Anna Tomczak’s photographs are created in the studio where she assembles her “scenes.” Each image is described in vibrant colors and assembled with found objects such as botanicals, memorabilia, and artifacts, as well as the human figure. In her own words, she explains, “Artifacts depict my personal experience through visual narrative and combine color, light and texture to welcome the interpretation of the viewer. I am interested in the impact of images combined together- textures, feathers, air bubbles, and butterflies, patterns of light and shadow.”
The Impossible Project – Keeping Polaroid Alive
In March of 2008, Polaroid discontinued production of all of its instant films including 20×24 Polaroid Film. The 20×24 camera is currently operating on the last remaining stock of Polaroid film. Thus the Impossible Project was formed – a group of Polaroid enthusiasts that are trying to create an entirely new instant film product, compatible with Polaroid cameras, that would keep the medium alive. Their mission is to provide this amazing material created by Polaroid as long as it lasts and will provide a high quality alternative when the time is right. In the meantime, access to this technology is still a very rare opportunity, it rarely travels within the US and the opportunity to work with it is a very special situation.
