Polaroid Retrospective

Excellent show of polaroid works at the AOP Gallery in Leonard Street. A very diverse selection of works, large and small — from long-discarded test shots, to monumental 20″x24″ prints. There’s an immediacy and clarity to much of the work that is hard to imagine in any other format. Luminous, grain-free skin tones. Sadly, the spur for the exhibition was Polaroid’s decision to ditch the film-making business once and for all.

On til November 6. Go see.
