I’ve been working on this particular Polaroid series for a while now. I started photographing professional models then I thought of including friends, friends of friends, amateur models etc. I knew it was going to be more challenging and of course it was.. It’s not easy to find someone that would literally strip in front of your camera but thanks to some very supportive friends (that did) and the pictures being now online more people are slooooowly getting in touch! If you’d like to take part in the project, please drop me an email!
The pictures are taken mainly on expired Polaroid and Fuji film, they are then bleached to reclaim a negative and finally scanned. There is no major retouching apart from some dust and scratches removal, it’s pretty much a raw process where loads of mistakes happen, sometimes happy ones.

Wandering around London early-ish in the morning a while ago. I’ve always loved this spot.
Last week we shot Andrea @ Established Models for a beauty editorial and had the time to take some wonderful portraits as well. Hasselblad and Ilford HP5, a breath of fresh air! Here is the contact sheet.
I’ve been experimenting with some old polaroids recently and I’m loving the final random result. This photo of Isabella was taken as an extra for a Volt Cafe’ editorial we shot back in 2012
