These are all Fuji Instax mini instant pictures that I am treating like containers to be opened or marred upon development. They are also akin to drawings as interruptions of the photo development process. I’ve been interested more in using my hands to physically manipulate the pictures I make and enjoy how the cuts interfere or leave traces. Here the image captured with the camera is secondary to the mark making into the photographic containment space. The initial photograph is more like an internal backdrop for the physical photo object.
