History of My Photo Art

The hand-manipulation of Polaroids has been going on since the 1970's and probably reached its peak just prior to the popularity of home computers, digital cameras and PhotoShop. The type of film necessary to do the effects, Polaroid Time-Zero was hugely popular from the late 1970's and through the 1980's. While Polaroid came up with newer brands of instant film, it kept making the film until December of 2006. Thus, the era of the hand-manipulated Polaroids is winding down.

Nonetheless, the ability to take photos and make them artistic continues thanks to computer photo programs. As a photo artist, I'll continue to make the Polaroids until the film is completely gone, then concentrate entirely on digital photography and the effects that can be done within that realm.
