Beautiful Mistakes

Edgar Allan Poe reportedly once said, “there is no exquisite beauty without some strangeness in the proportion.” This statement could not be truer than in photographer William Miller’s Ruined Polaroid Series. The series results from experiments with a broken Polaroid SX-70 camera that the New York-based photographer picked up at a yard sale for $20. Miller discovered that the faulty equipment was spilling out two pictures at a time, with the film often getting stuck in the gears, exposing and mangling them in beautifully unpredictable ways. {Source}
