Photography: Polaroids

In February 2008, Polaroid announced it would discontinue production of film, sending waves of dismay throughout the photo community and beyond. Beloved of amateurs and professionals since its invention in the early 1960s, the Polaroid exemplified photographic spontaneity; it was also the most material of photographic practices, delivering a physical document within seconds. Long considered an ideal camera for the informal family snap, in the 1990s and early 2000s the Polaroid look determined the street photography of an entire generation of young artists, who turned its immediacy to document their lives. In October of 2009, Polaroid announced that it was bringing back its instant cameras, and young American photographers continue to expand its intimate idiom and character.

David Bailey: 128 Polaroids

Text by David Bailey.

For the past 38 years, David Bailey (born 1938) has photographed his wife Catherine using Polaroid film. Developing organically over the decades, a book grew with no specific purpose in mind. The result is this visual poem, a witness to their working collaborations and personal adventures. In Bailey’s words: The years went by with great ease and charm. I have been lucky to have such a willing and beautiful subject in my wife and partner in this adventure we have shared together. It came about not by making a plan. All my good ideas seem to happen by accident. My . . . .go to book page >>

Cary Loren: Polaroids

Edited with interview by Cameron Jamie.

In Polaroids, Michigan-based artist, musician, writer and bookstore owner Cary Loren (born 1955) interweaves snapshots of his 1970s Detroit entourage along with photographs of his elaborately staged collage assemblages of prints, TV stills, magazine covers, stickers, movie posters and other ephemera. This particular medium allows for direct manipulation of seemingly unrelated visual idioms into pictures of skillfully artistic quality.

As a founder and member of Destroy All Monsters, as well as owner of Book Beat, Loren’s variety of works assembles into an impressive pictorial altar of memento mori, assimilating his obsession with pop and trash culture, glamour, transience and death. This . . . .go to book page >>
