Andrew Millar

Andrew lives in Whitechapel, East London and (until now) only produced work using vintage Polaroid SX-70 cameras whilst exploring manual manipulation techniques using analog instant film. Andrew uses instant film to achieve effects by manipulating the emulsion during the developing process, separating the image emulsion from the film base, double exposing the film, overlaying the transparencies or by varying the temperature and the developing time. This technique enhances the surreal, dreamlike mood of the image and inspires us to question what is real. The basis of Andrew’s work originates from this same method. The manipulated polaroid is transformed into a hand finished, gold leafed, cmyk limited edition screen print.
