Featured Artist - she hit pause studios
Brooklyn based Polaroid artist Matt Schwartz of she hit pause studios has been photographing his whimsical images of girls, surf culture and vintage finds for the past 8 years. His work has been describes as “ walking into a dream or a memory”, and we love the relaxed yet edgy feel of every piece.
Matt takes large format Polaroids, pulls apart the film and then rubs the negative onto watercolor paper. The technique is called a Polaroid transfer.
Images are available framed or unframed. The frames are made of weathered barnwood, that add to the overall feel of his work without taking away. Images are 11 inches x 14 inches, printed on textured water color paper and hand signed by the artist. Matt’s has worked with Anthropologie, Daily Candy, Nylon, Magazine. W Magazine and Levis.
