Kamala first took this photograph using a 1970’s era Polaroid SX-70 instant camera. She then separated the layers of the photo by hand, using water and a gentle touch to reveal the image within the delicate emulsion. Again, using water, she transferred the thin emulsion to heavy cotton fine art paper and finished it with a UV resistant varnish. She loves the tactile quality of the process and the rich texture and character it imparts to the finished images, which are always symbols of her home and the things she holds dear.

Kamala has always best understood the world through photography. It is a means for exploration with a freedom she does not experience any other way. She rarely approaches a scene with a plan, preferring to respond spontaneously to her senses. Her intention is less about documenting a place and more about conveying how the elements feel. Kamala lives in coastal Southern California.
