I am using Polaroid cameras to produce images. The pictures carry the usual hallmarks of indistinctness, colour shift and texture, and seem to hold time within their surface in a very particular way. While these pictures can be produced in a few short minutes – like waiting for an answer that is ultimately unforthcoming; the images seem to conceal at least as much as they reveal.
“Polaroid cameras were extensively used by the Police at crime scenes; to record details, bodies and the locations of objects”
As time passes and the media attention waxes and wanes I am attempting to use these photographs as questions or reminders, to mark time. The images are in response to the collective shock of the community who are frustrated and angry that such a preventable tragedy could happen. Now Grenfell Tower stands as a brutal symbol: highlighting the social divisions in one of the richest council boroughs in one of the richest countries in the world.
