“Ken and Mario made me feel welcome and comfortable right from the start. The tools and techniques I learned at the workshop
are helping me develop my SX-70 work in more creative ways. The workshop left me feeling encouraged and inspired – as if my
artistic battery has been charged. I highly recommend the Kenario workshop for everyone interested in the SX-70 art form,
whether beginner or seasoned photographer. One couldn’t ask for better mentors.”

Kenario’s work, interview and techniques are featured in the new book “Polaroid Manipulations”, a complete visual guide to creating sx70, transfer, and digital prints.
With hundreds of images and tips, plus the history of Polaroid cameras and film, this book (already in its second printing) is the most instructive on the market.
