Back in 2008 Barbara Hitchcock and Steve Crist published, in my opinion, the ABSOLUTE book about instant photographs,
“The Polaroid Book”, an essay about fifty years of the Polaroid history, seen through the eyes of hundreds of photographers with almost 400 images.
I wouldn’t be surprised to see this book on most of photographers and collector’s shelves worldwide.
Reading this book affects the rest of your life, you are enriched by an enormous baggage of images where Polaroids has been used with any kind of subject and in any possible way, setting a very high benchmark for all artists currently dealing with instant photographs.Then we had the fortune to cross into Amanda Mason works, an Australian artist who is able to mold into instant photographs her
passion for this artistic expression. Projects like “Short Stories”, “Out of the Darkness”, “Film Noir” could be taken into consideration as an innovative inspiration for those who are willing to get close to the instant photograph.Despite her young age, her works shows a mature talented artist, in fact she has already exhibited internationally as well as she has been featured in several publications.I’m sure you’ll love this album which only represents a micro-world of her large, ongoing, artistic production.
