For ten years I photographed exclusively with a vintage 1972 Polaroid camera and I developed a unique painterly style of hand-manipulated images. I coined the term fauxtographs® for my manipulated Polaroid SX70 photographs. When I began creating these images in the late 1990's, I thought they looked more painterly than photographic. I was able to soften the hard lines of photography using small sculpting tools to move the emulsion directly on the film. My original fauxtographs® are 3"x3" and have been scanned as large digital files which can be enlarged to approximately 40"x40" or larger. They are popular as canvas giclee prints.
