Bio
Rosanna is a self-taught photographer specializing in alternative photographic processes, specifically Polaroid SX-70 manipulations, emulsion transfers, and digital infrared photography. The Polaroid SX-70 manipulations were created by projecting a slide image onto Polaroid time zero film using a Daylab unit. As the film was developing, the image was manipulated using a sharp tool, thus giving it a "painterly effect." Polaroid discontinued time zero film in 2005, so each archival print is very unique and truly a collector's item. The emulsion transfer process involves placing Polaroid 669 film in very hot water to "lift" the emulsion layer from the photographic paper. The emulsion layer in then transferred onto tile or watercolor paper and manipulated to give it a wrinkled effect. Her digital infrared images were created using an infrared filter on her camera. The filter turns anything with chlorophyll white so the result is a summer scene which looks like a beautiful winter scene.

Favorite Materials
bamboo skewer, Polaroid time zero film, double sided tape, super white notecard stock, epson paper

The coasters are so cool! What a great idea! We are taking a vacation this year, but staying with family along the way to save some money. We'll do activities within driving distances from their houses. Nothing overly exciting but at least gets us out of the house! :)
