Since it’s very first days photography faced the challenge of manifesting itself as a fine art form - it’s reproducibility famously marked by Walter Benjamin as the end of the “Aura” marked the beginning of imagery available for each and every one. Today we snap millions and millions of photos every day and orientate us by them - we take them as truths, what we see is what we expect to get. So why make your way to Paris to meet Mona Lisa, or Madrid’s Reina Sofia to stand in front of Picasso’s Guernica if you can have a print out hanging on your wall anyways?
What Benjamin called it “a distance however close it may appear” - art still and will always live of our encounters with it. The questions it puts in our heads, the impression it leaves us with, the conversations we have about it and maybe just the way we have to go to get there. In this sense Polaroids are a very special photographic medium, the only one maybe, which can really be called to have originals. I would like to dedicate this medium with which I have been working for over 15 years a special place in the gallery.
All Polaroids are available as
