Nathalie Hambro’s work with polaroid is fascinatingly experimental as when the films were produced again by the Impossible Project in 2011, many years after the original Polaroid company had closed down, at the beginning production was not yet technically perfected and there were many chemical corruptions.  As a result the images are not only unique, but also produce an unpredictable result. Then polaroids had also the options to be with black, silver or white frames which interacted with the perception of the image itself.

For Hambro experiencing with Polaroids photographs, has a parallel with the Japanese art of Kintsugi which centres on the acceptance of transience and imperfections, making them beautiful.
