Limboids / Protostars
Ongoing series part inspired by the one and only polaroid camera. The magical and technical genius behind this machine which with a click and a mechanical whir, delivers a glossy record of a recent moment into the light, has kept me spellbound since its release in 1948 by Edwin H. Land.
I imagine, like the birth of anything – in this case a photograph of a protostar – there is an in-between moment, a limbo state.
