I kept a journal of Polaroid pictures, many with writing on them, from 1987 through 2003. They serve as a sort of antidote to my commercial work – these pictures were made purely for their own sake, and reflect a wide variety of my responses to life.

The pictures were made with a Polaroid 250 camera ( a $10 yard sale item) on type 665 P/N film, which made a big negative that I wrote on with a permanent marker.
