Polaroid SX-70

The manipulated SX70 prints began while living in Yosemite directing photographic workshops for the Ansel Adams Gallery.  The prints were made between 1973 and 1978 at which point “Familiar Subjects” was published by Headlands Press, printed by Harper and Row.  This body of work combined interest in painting, interior still life; landscape and domestic imagery.  The majority of the figures represented in the photographs were family members and close friends.  Pressure on the surface of the acetate with a dental tool, simultaneously emphasizing and editing clarified content and form.
