Polaroid Composites, mixed media

Horizons. Family photographs from 1930's Patagonia and mini instant photographs of my daily daylight through tracing paper attached to my window in the UK.

The instancy and blankness of my instax film contrasts with the narratives and depth of history of the Patagonia photos, of which I know very little. By giving the Patagonia photographs a new horizon created by my light, they are given a new reading. No longer fixed in Patagonia or from nearly 90 years ago, the images have a new life based in an in between place and time, in which I can be part of the story too. The tracing paper sagged and aged over the course of time attached to my window, creating another inescapable vision of time passing.
