William Miller, Ruined Polaroid #40
|Photographs ©William Miller|
Sometimes you just wish you came up with an amazing idea like William Miller's Ruined Polaroids! The abstract pictures were taken with an old broken Polaroid SX-70 camera rescued from a yard sale. William soon realised after the first use of the camera that it was spilling out two pictures at a time, the film often stuck in the gears, exposing and mangling the images in various exciting and unpredictable ways. He learned to control the camera's flaws and produced each picture as a nice surprise. William's Ruined Polaroid #40 was awarded the Photography & Digital Graphics Prize, at the Celeste Prize 2011 part of the online artists gallery, Celeste Network.
