In Polaroid 4 of the recent Masami series, it appears that his eyes have three felt-tip pen lines defacing each eye or three scratch marks. A cool effect but why? Did he do that?

It was a fairly common trick; take a blunt edge such as a key and ‘draw’ on the Polaroid which would distort the image. I tended to do that if it wasn’t looking like a good photo, as was the case with Masami’s image (4) which is soft, in the hope of making it interesting enough to keep.
