Vicky and Doug: Portrait by Wayne Radford


Wayne Radford’s last portrait was of Victoria and myself. The Type 59 Polaroid sheet film had sat in the bottom of the box for over 5 years beyond the expiry date and the mark of time left as a humidity smear of magenta in a reduced D-max. It’s a great image — and a fitting end to the ‘Roid’.

  1. What an amazing night. To have such inspirational photographers witnessing this process especially with the aide of wine and beer to transfer the Polaroid. Thank you Doug for sharing this event. One I will never forget.
