Rebecca L Barnard took the series of images presented in this book with a Polaroid SX70 camera in 1992 or 1993. During the few minutes that the prints took to develop, she heated the print on a warm surface and used a tool, that enabled her to modify the texture and shape of the emerging figures so as to make the photographs look more like small paintings.
