Featured Artist - Hilary Hitchcock

This is my favorite image Polaroid Transfer image by St Louis artist, Hilary Hitchcock.

Here is what Hilary has to say about herself:

I’ve been taking photos for several years. I especially like documenting things that are rarely seen or disappearing. The design sensibility of days gone by tends to make me swoon, as do rural Midwestern landscapes.

Check out her shop to see more of her work!

Oh wow, what an honor to be featured in your blog! Thank you so much. You're so kind to me.

(And I think I might have rigged up something to make some transfers for the time being, using a packfilm camera and a Kali-Copier. I was playing with it all weekend. Will post results when I get them scanned. I'm way excited. Thanks for all your help!)

(Sorry, there was bad formatting in that last post -- trying again.)

I've begun posting the new transfers on Etsy and Flickr.



I am having so much fun with it. I love the uncertainty of the process.

I'm not such a great writer but I'd be happy to write a little bit about it if you'd like, let me know.

I got the idea when I was looking for a less expensive alternative to a Daylab for making Polaroid transfers, and in hunting around I came across on
on Flickr, which was extremely helpful.

Dagnabbit! The links look fine in the preview but then with publishing they are wrong. Sorry about that!

So I'll just tack them on here.
