Polaroid photographs inspired by Rorschach ink blots

Laura Hughes is a photographer located in NYC. She began experimenting with a digital video and Polaroid Land Camera. She was drawn to the vivid color and painterly texture of the instant film. These Polaroids became a visual diary — documenting her travels, self-portraits and portraits of her friends. About her series Botanicus Obscurus she writes:

‘My flowers are based on Rorschach’s ink blots. By photographing and mirroring the flower an entirely different entity emerges. The flower, the initial element, morphs, into an alien being. The details and textures of the plant remain. The mirrored pieces fit together like a puzzle, and the outcome is always surprising’.
