From the LAEM Store: Large Format Polaroid Transfers

Brooklyn-based Polaroid artist Matt Schwartz, from She Hit Pause Studios, has been photographing his whimsical images of girls, surf culture and vintage finds for the past eight years. Schwartz takes large format Polaroids, pulls apart the film, and then rubs the negative onto watercolor paper.

The technique is called a Polaroid transfer and the results are stunning. He also offers his images framed in weathered barn wood, adding a rustic complement to his work. We’ve highlighted She Hit Pause Studios as a featured collection in the Lost At E Minor store.
