Further information

'The size and relative immobility of the large Polaroid camera combined with its ability to render details means it is well suited to working with life sized studio sets. My concern was to make "backdrops" that reflected the fantasy character and personality of the person photographed and in fact provide them with an environment in which to act.' Robyn Stacey 1986
