She uses a 4-by-5-inch view camera with Type 55 Polaroid film, which produces an instant print that she can give to her subjects and provides her with a peel-away negative that can be used in an enlarger. The prints at Iris, with a few 8-by-10-inch exceptions, are 20-by-24 inches. These archival silver gelatin prints retain the ragged, interestingly patterned edges of the negative, forming an immediate frame for the work within the slim shafts of the actual frame. Several times she joins two prints to form a diptych.
