Alt Polaroid

Alt polaroid is a series entirely realized with polaroid SX 70, retouched manually with gouache and using different tools and techniques. The goal of this creative process is to have a raw and spontaneous rendering by creating the entire work with my polaroid and the paint of my hand.

This suite of self-portraits depicts part of my battle with cancer that I have faced twice and beaten. It also evokes my recovery as well as the invisible and indelible marks that it left me.

The vision I have of myself and my relationship with others have been altered after these events and these polaroids represent this new perception on which I prefer to put images rather than words.
