Into the Day / Out of the Night
Into the Day and Out of the Night are a duo of images which have been made using a scan of a multiple-exposed Polaroid taken at Telegraph Hill Park in South London.
The works merge analogue and digital processes and explore ideas of memory, nostalgia and impermanence. While Into the Day remains true to the original image, Out of the Night has been edited to create a colour-negative version of the same photograph.
Layered, over-exposed and slightly out-of-focus the works reflect the inherently fleeting – and at times faulty – nature of the Polaroid medium. Printed with archival pigments however, the prints will outlive the original Polaroid, a medium which is prone to fade.
