Raleigh Hotel swimming pool.


I used the Polaroid Image System box a lot. Whenever I had a job, I ordered a good supply of Polaroid film which I then used sparingly. I kept them all religiously, scanned them with very high resolution to make very large prints and finally published them in two books at RGB Books: Image System #1 and #2.

My first commercial job in the USA: a shoe catalog for Stéphane Kélian. The team was staying at the Raleigh Hotel, South Beach, Miami. It is one of the most spectacular Art-Deco hotels in the area. The hotel’s swimming pool is without a doubt one of the most remarkable.

We would get up with the chickens and I would enjoy the morning light. There was no one in the hallways, the pool was empty and I took the opportunity to discreetly climb on the roof to snap this picture.

Someone once told me that behind this series of polaroids' apparent tranquility, there always seemed to be a few dead bodies hidden behind a bush. I've never looked at them the same way since.

Printing & Framing

Print sizes depend on the support because photographs' dimensions slightly vary from picture to picture. The variation depends on the camera used and the editing process.

Fine Art Prints have white boarders, because they are meant to fit in standard frames. The dimensions of white boarders vary to fit the exact dimensions of the photograph.

Aluminium and Floater Frames do not have white boarders. These supports are custom-made to fit the exact dimensions of the photograph. Therefore, the sizes vary slightly from the standard sizes.
