Capturing the Flora and Architecture of Como Park’s Marjorie McNeely Conservatory
With their remaining sheets of the now extinct SX-70 Polaroid film Mark D Roberts and Denise Rouleau capture the flora and architecture of Como Park’s Marjorie McNeely Conservatory. What makes this film so unique to work with is that the film dyes are like wet paint that can be hand manipulated before they harden, resulting in surreal and impressionistic images. The Polaroid images are then printed up to four feet square on a metallic coated paper that enhances their luminosity and textural qualities.
