A Polaroid image transfer is an alternative photographic processes which crosses the boundaries of painting, print making, and photography. In the process an image is exposed onto Polaroid film by a camera, slide printer or enlarger. The film is pulled apart before complete development has occurred and the dye-laden negative is transferred to another surface, such as watercolor paper. The dyes form an image on this alternative surface. The image can then be manipulated in a variety of ways if desired. Due to the process involved in the transfer each image that is created is unique.
