Jack Perno’s statement about SAFE HARBOR:

I almost didn’t get this photograph. I had the idea of creating Safe Harbor and I couldn’t get the correct alignment of the Portal and the child. I had exposed all but one sheet of film and none of them worked. The images were misaligned all over the place. Reluctantly, I had resigned myself to an unproductive day. With the sun dropping and only one sheet of film left, I asked the boy to please give me one more shot. I have to give him a lot of credit for sticking with me until the end, because it was the last sheet of film that produced the image and it was worth it.

A lot of time and materials is invested into the initial exposure of the Portal on Polaroid, so it’s very rewarding when the magic occurs.

 

Jack Perno’s statement about THE PORTAL SERIES:

A gateway from one place to another, a world, a time , or to an expanded awareness.

Each image is a story or narrative, which susceptible to multiple interpretation, encouraging the viewer to derive their own conclusion and personal meaning.
