What was your first shot ?

My first subject was my child.

How did your work, idea evolve ?

Based on the special properties of the Impossible films and the results achieved with the Polaroid Sun-600, I designated the color film to express illusory subjects and the B&W film to capture the imperial garden of the Forbidden City.

Are you happy with the result ?

1) The film's performance is unstable, but the B&W is much better in this regard. There was only one accident, after opening one of the boxes of film it was overexposed to light so no pictures appeared.
2) The color film is more problematic, performing very poorly in low light; the images are all tinted yellow (the B&W film as well), an almost unbearable yellow.

What's next ?
