Below is screen resolution copy of “Grain Elevator 1, Noblesville and Ron Kernʼs thoughts about his Polaroid photography.
For print resolution files and additional information please contact Ron at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 317.507.7888.
When photographing I feel and sense the spirit of what I am seeing. The “design” of the subject or scene becomes an integral part of the final composition. I examine and present nature’s and/or man’s mark, the combination of which is often society’s response to my subject. The resulting photograph shows the condition and existence of the subject within a context, literal or metaphorical.
For my Polaroid work I use a vintage Polaroid 420 camera. I make exposures onto Fuji instant color film. I recover a negative from the portion of the film that is typically thrown away. It is digitally scanned, converted to a monochrome image in Adobe Photoshop and printed with an archival inkjet printer.
