....The real story of this show is the play of time. Schneider first shoots scores of images with expired Polaroid stock, hence, each yellowing image is stained with chemical burns and starbursts and a phosphorescent blue. Indeed, in the first mentioned piece, the effect resembles the opening credits of Bonanza when the map of the Ponderosa bursts into flame. The artist then combs through her cluster of snaps to create a storyboard of a few choice images, and then re-prints these mini-narratives as C-Prints. It's a process that greatly increases the scale of the otherwise throwaway snapshots, while magnifying the imperfections in the expired film stock. (James Scarborough, Frieze Magazine)
