Ruined Polaroids by William Miller

Ruined Polaroids by William Miller. As the title of this series says, these are some polaroid photographs which have been ruined, but I'm not sure about how they were impaired. They seem to be affected by some chemical reaction, as you can see in the following pictures they look very organic.  I couldn't find any info about the process of how they could be ruined, your comments and thoughts about, will be welcome. UPDATE: Info about the process into the post. See more;

"These are Polaroid pictures run through a partially broken SX-70 camera that I purchased from a yard sale. The camera sometimes spills out 2 pictures at a time and the film often gets stuck in the gears, exposing and mangling the images in unpredictable ways. Over time I've figured out how to control and accentuate aspects of the camera's flaws but the images themselves are always a surprise. Each one is determined by the idiosyncrasies of the film and the camera." - William Miller
