I am creating polaroid art since the year 2000. I want to show the truth. I manually edit and manipulate the polaroids in my own original style. 2015 I finally made the artistic choice to show not just the image but the entire polaroid without the matt frame. I want to show how the polaroid really looks underneath the frame in its most authentic true way. This artistic choice is in alignment with my message and mission as an artist to expose the lie (matrix) and show reality, show the truth and wake people up. “The world is only an illusion. Life is a dream. Wake up!” - MINIMAN
