Take Up Your Cross Daily

Tracy May Fouts's avatar Tracy May Fouts

A pictorial series of six emulsion lifts, a process now forgotten as a result of Polaroid ceasing to produce instant film. These six emulsion lifts are created from Fujifilm instant film. If it were not for Fujifilm continuing instant film, this process would no longer exist; as it is, this is still a very unique and highly valued process. Using a tripod, ladder, a change of outfit, a remote-controlled shutter release and photoshop editing, I was able to create a pictorial story. This is a pictorial display of my journey to take up my cross daily. I have had to learn to die to myself daily and walk in the gift of new life Jesus has given me. Learning to live a selfless life is a life-time process that ceaselessly provides freedom and new life. I encourage my viewers to participate in receiving this gift of a new start; a fresh beginning.
