Polaroids are real, unique originals. There is no negative or digital backup from which to make additional copies. In today’s world they are increasingly special, with their singularity, small scale and erratic image quality in stark contrast to the razor-sharp digital images we have become accustomed to seeing. They are mysterious, rich of feeling and loaded with nostalgia.
The polaroids presented here are a selection made since December 2006, both on original Polaroid film and the more recent instant films from The Impossible Project
