Polaroid was photographers’ ‘comfort blanket’
August 11, 2008
A photographic exhibition to mark the end of the Polaroid film era will take place in London in October.
Billed as a ?retrospective?, the show will focus on how professionals used Polaroid film and highlight specific techniques such as film transfers.
?Polaroid instant film was the comfort blanket for professional photographers for many years, until the digital revolution came along,? said an AOP Gallery spokesman.
The exhibition will be formed of work by members of the Association of Photographers (AOP) members.
?The collection of images will be a reminiscent chapter in the history of photography,’ added the gallery.
‘Polaroid Retrospective’ will take place at the AOP Gallery from 23 October-14 November.
The gallery can be found at 81 Leonard Street, London EC2A 4QS. Entry is free.
