Join renowned Polaroid artist Rhiannon Adam as she talks you through the simple chemical processing that allows you to manipulate your instant images onto a new medium.
Emulsion Lifting is a process particular to certain types of old Polaroid film, and the new Impossible Project films. The basic principal is that the layers of the developed photograph are separated, and with the help of water and deft fingers, the picture layer can be floated off and “lifted” onto a new surface. This creates a unique artwork, crossing the boundaries between fine art and photography, and opening up new avenues for creative alchemy!
