Diego Uchitel: Polaroids

Published by Damiani
Foreword by Diane von Furstenberg.

Featured image is reproduced from <I>Diego Uchitel: Polaroids</I>.Diego Uchitel has long revered the Polaroid for its dreamlike color and depth, and over the course of his 25-year career, he has continually sought to conjure these qualities in his fashion and celebrity photography. Uchitel used polaroid film from 1982 to 2006, until the digital camera became an unavoidable replacement. this volume is his loving homage to the medium that helped define his style—a selection of his favorite images, both commercial and personal, of models, fashion designers and celebrities such as Jessica Alba, Gabriel Byrne, Sofia Coppola, Diane von Furstenberg, Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler, Jack McCollough, Julianne Moore and Sting, as well as landscape photographs. Polaroids is awash with the tonal warmth and artifact feel of polaroid film, from its splendid design to the photographs themselves, which are reproduced in their original (and current) condition, with traces of tape and little signs of wear and tear around their edges. the book is bound in linen with a tip-on image.
Diego Uchitel grew up in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where as a boy he often photographed his physician father’s patients. He moved to Los Angeles just after high school to pursue a career in film and enrolled at UCLA Film School, but soon realized that photography was closer to his heart. Uchitel’s photographs have been featured in Elle, Vanity Fair, Harper’s Bazaar, German and Spanish Vogue, Vogue Hommes, The New York Times Sunday Magazine, D, Surface, Premiere, Citizen K and Rolling Stone. His advertising clients include Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue, Victoria’s Secret, Diane von Furstenberg, Anthropologie, Graff, Avon, Neiman Marcus, Olay, Warner Brothers, Nike, Levi’s and Microsoft.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

The New York Times Online

Bruce Pask

Uchitel has collected 25 years’ worth of these photographic sketches in a new book, “Diego Uchitel: Polaroids” (Damiani, $50). The project, he explains, happened organically. “Today, layouts are done on computers. But back then I’d put one Polaroid on the wall next to another one. Four or five shoots later, they’d start spreading.” And so it grew. The book’s images, culled from years of portrait and fashion sittings, are presented bearing their age in elegant fashion, exhibiting remnants of tape, scratches and fingerprints, like relics from another time.

Women's Wear Daily

Rosemary Feitelberg

Anyone who has ever posed for a Polaroid can recognize the snap of the collapsible camera and the buzz of the print. Having done the drill thousands of times for major names and up-and-comers, fashion photographer Diego Uchitel now has a book to prove it.
“Polaroids” features 240-plus never-before-seen shots that have been reproduced in their original untouched form — traces of tape, hints of wear and tear and typically muted hues included. These unrehearsed and painterly images helped Uchitel to define his style.

Departures Magazine

Editors

The Polaroid is like the photographer's version of the painter's sketch- it's a rough blueprint rather than a finished product. So there's something very intimate about Diego Uchitel's new book, Polaroids (Damiani), which shows how much art there is to a medium that wasn't even meant to be seen.
