    About The Work

    Slater Bradley’s work explores the murky terrain of self-identity. By using both positive and negative Polaroid images, he examines the painful inner developments of adolescents: their perceived self-image and slippery, amorphous identity. Bradley’s photographs merge his subjects’ physical self with their psychological doppelganger.

    This unique diptych is from a series of eight works, all comprised of a negative and positive photographic image. The positive image’s background is negated by hand-colored gold, silver or red markers, to create an abstracted plane from which a pre-teen girl emerges; the negative image, once discerned, reveals the full picture to tell the story that has been suppressed in the positive.
