Within these pages, lies my view of the world – slivers of its truth, beauty, impermanence, and mystery – as seen through the lens of a vintage Polaroid Land Camera.
I never imagined this series would endure as long as it did. Over time it revealed a life of its own. There was much to learn on my end. The more I became practiced in the art of polaroid, the more I found the medium to be relatable to the human condition, imperfect and changeable. What inspired me to continue so long, was a personal revelation – with every peel of this (now obscure) pack-film, I removed a layer of covering over my vulnerable, summer heart.
–Jen Ervin, Notes from the Ark, 2018
