This is a book of manipulated Polaroid SX-70 images of Santa Cruz created by local photographer Portia Shao. Time-zero is the film used in the Polaroid SX-70 instant camera which can be manipulated using a pointed object while the emulsion is still wet. The resulting images have a painterly look, and each one is unique. Portia created these images in and around Santa Cruz, including downtown, along Pacific avenue, and the Boardwalk.

Take a tour of Santa Cruz through the lens of Portia's Polaroid SX-70 camera, and enjoy the beauty and uniqueness of Santa Cruz.
