Artwork description
The Polaroid type used to make these photographs is paper based and available in 10x8", 5x4" and 3x4" formats until the early 2000s when it was discontinued. Not to be confused with the 'integral' Polaroid material now being manufactured by Polaroid Originals.

The c-type prints are made in small editions on high quality colour photographic paper known for it's stability - Fuji Crystal Archive. The surface is described as 'glossy' but has more of a smooth sheen than high gloss.

All photographs are signed on the back and are shipped with a signed certificate of authenticity which also bears the studio stamp - please see generic examples shown. Shipping Details Mounted or framed artwork or photographs up to 30 x 40cm will be shipped between rigid foamboard. Larger unmounted prints will be rolled together with a cotton rag protective paper and shipped in a sturdy tube. About the Artist Matthew Houston was born in London in 1961 and grew up in Norfolk and Suffolk. An interest in photography began early in life, growing out of two childhood obsessions - chemistry and the natural world. He studied printmaking at Central School of Art, London and also earned an honours degree in photography from the London College of Printing.

While running a Cabaret on a sailing ship moored in the London docks he began making portraits using the small stage. First with friends and then actors, models and dancers. Many were made with large format cameras using sheet film and Polaroid. more »
