Botanica is an intimate photo project created with a Polaroid SX70 (from 1973) and Impossible Project films. This series gathers some selfportraits composed with handmade transparencies superpositions of Polaroid's emulsions.
This personnal tale unveils the fusion of the body and the typical flowers found in Quebec, the photographer's new home. Some flowers are doors to cross, others are curtains to hide behind, or nectars to drink with a straw.
The authentic asperities created by the handmade Polaroid dry lift bring a sensitive texture to the conceptual aspect of the series, crystalizing a step, a transformation.
Sarah Seené is a french photographer and filmmaker based in Montreal, working with instant photography, more precisely Polaroid.
Her world is composed of a strange atmosphere, between dream and poetry, tinted with childhood and loneliness ; her images being suspended in time and unreal.
She's part of The 12.12 project and World Wide Women, two international collectives of women analog photographers. She's the co-founder of a long distance collaboration project called I'll be your mirror, with the american photographer Sarah Elise Abramson. Her work has been shown in about 35 exhibitions, solo and collective, in Paris, Berlin, Prague, Milan, Amsterdam, London, Montreal and New-York. It's been published in a lot of international magazines and webzines.
