life sized polaroids (hawaii)

uluhe fern shoot, volcano national park, hawaii.

i took a series of polaroid samples on my recent trip to hawaii. the image on the polaroid is the same size as the item photographed (so that if i want to photograph something bigger than a polaroid, i have to create a polaroid construction).

the series includes polaroids taken on the caldera floor of kilauea volcano, which is an active volcano.

07jan14k (vnp kilauea caldera floor).jpg
i am finding myself more compelled by the life-sized photos -- which do a better job at showing, for example, the plant life making inroads on the caldera floor. it also seems somehow truer to me.
