In the month of February, Miranda Herrick (owner & creator of the MIR Gallery, Nashville) had chosen my Polaroid Spectra Images to be on display at one of the shows. I was featured with 7 other photographers (including Jennifer Ford, which I have mentioned in a previous post) The show has long since been down, and a new brilliant show has taken its place. I would like to display of few of the Spectra photos that she had decided on displaying during that month.
Charlsie’s chuckfeet. I write on the bottom of most of my Polaroids with a vintage IBM Selectric typewriter. Quotes from my favourite books, authors, and even my own poetry. I used to type ‘ab’ in the corner, but have since been married, so I now type ‘as’.
I did not want this one displayed, because it was so out of focus. But Miranda seemed to love it. It is an acrylic that I painted in January. I have a slight obsession with painting animals, or people in animal suits.
This is a favourite of mine. It was taken in Pennyrile Forest with the law enforcement close-up attachment. They used to use Polaroid Spectra cameras on the police force, and the close-up attachment was for photographing evidence.
This is a timed shot at Land Between the Lakes. From left to right: Matthew Smith, Charlsie Harrison, myself. I have crumpled the photo and put it in my pocket to develop. I have a problem with messing my photos up on purpose. Not necessarily a problem, but I LOVE imperfections.
