When William Miller purchased an old Polaroid camera at a yard sale, he did not expect the surprising outcome of the camera's damaged condition. The images were all messed up and unpredictable, showing blurs of color and split frames that look more like watercolor paintings than photographs.

The photojournalist decided to work with this camera and its warped perspective on the world. His series 'Ruined Polaroids' captures the nostalgic era of the Polaroid camera and the fussy nature of the film, yet puts a modern spin on the beauty captured in the mayhem of these abstract images.

The intention and thought process of the photographer are disregarded by the old Polaroid camera, as the damaged device creates its own scenery and views. Stats for Damaged Film Photography Trending: Older & Average
