Polaroid Part Three . . . of Three

Last of the Polaroid emulsion transfer prints. All four of these were taken back in the mid-1980s at a mask festival on the Miracle Mile in Los Angeles. I was working for Polaroid at the time and testing out their new Spectra camera, but also took some 35mm slides of the masks as well, which are what I used to create these. The Spectra was a terrific camera. My framed original prints from that camera still look good after all those years. Wish I did! ©Carol Leigh

I haven't seen your others yet but these are very, VERY cool! They appear all bundled up for a cold day OR they might be what you find when you unwrap a mummy's facial wrap :-)

Yes, these masks were incredible. And they were very large. The face was life-size and the "surround" extended way out. Lots of texture. Just gorgeous. -- Carol Leigh
