Sometimes an imperfect medium can be the perfect way to express a certain feeling. Polaroids are prone to overexposure and blurring; they often do inexplicable things to light both natural and artificial. But there’s absolutely no better way to capture the hazy, dreamy bliss of a summer afternoon at the beach. London-based photographer Rhiannon Adam’s blotchy, bleached-out Polaroids, shot in the British seaside town of Margate, evoke timeless memories of childhood days at the shore, their sparkles and fades reproducing the dizzy feeling you get when you’ve been staring into the sun too long. Click through to see some of our favorite photos from the collection, and visit Adam’s website to explore the rest of her Polaroid art.
