Leicester Square, Empire Theatre


The famous Empire movie theatre in Leicester Square. That's pronounced "Lester", not "Lye Sesster" as I've overheard many an American say.

It is an SX-70 Polaroid Manipulation. I shot the Polaroid while walking to work this morning, then sat down for 10minutes with a wooden skewer smushing the emulsion around. Voila.

You can see all our Polaroid Manipulations here.

What a good idea, you've produced a sound idea for a painting, but I also think that your work stands in its own right.

Amazing where creativity comes from, is it not.
