"All alone on my island with the pinhole camera, two hours rowing hard from the civilisation, I was happy. . . I was thinking of the pioneers.... Yes, processing on site, that was important. Polaroid film, the only concession to modernism gave me the possibility to do it. Have you ever tried to wash your negatives with seawater? A small amount of watercolour paper, impregnated with kallitype emulsion, was my printing paper, which was contact-exposed in broad daylight." Philippe Moroux

I have washed my psyche with seawater and emerged as blue green as a mermaid looking for the sky.

you have way with words, that turn the everyday life in to magic :)

Everything is magical really if you think about it. Ideas, constructs, illusions, luminous beauty, intuition's realms and subrealms of mystery... On certain days I am certain of nothing at all. Things are never what they seem. Sorry, if I am rambling dear Moon.. You evoke poetic responses from me that are yours alone.
