In the pre-digital age the paper negatives that came with peel-apart instant film used to be nothing but trash. While being necessary for processing the image, their opaque
flipside made it impossible to put them in an enlarger like a regular film negative. What was left after glancing at the
modern miracle of instant film were thin white sheets of paper with no further use.

Like ghosts, they are of fragile nature, sensitive to light and their lifespan is short since oxidation of chemicals destroys the image over time. They fade away, like the memories they were supposed to preserve.

All photos were taken with a Polaroid Land Camera 230 and
Fuji FP-3000B pack film.
