a unique object, large-format Polaroid Polacolor print, signed, dated, and editioned '4/5' in ink in the margin, 2003
24¼ by 20 ¾ in. (61.6 by 52.7 cm.)
This unique, large-format Polaroid Polacolor print is in generally excellent condition. The colors remain bright and saturated, with no apparent fading. Upon close examination in the right portion of the image near the edge are 3 small starburst-shaped creases (together measuring approximately 1/2-inch in length) that appear to break the emulsion and that likely occurred as a result of the mounting process.
