Solaroids started as experimentation and reevaluation of a material displaced in today’s commercial imaging production. The abstract forms and colors developed on the film extend the function and boundaries of a material whose original purpose is now obsolete.—Jeff McLane
Los-Angeles based photographer Jeff McLane’s Solaroids were produced using large format Fuji instant film and direct outdoor light. To create the abstract photographs, he used long exposures of direct UV light. The images are not altered or retouched; the colors come from the film being pushed past its intended time.
