About a year ago, Paolo Roversi and Ezra Petronio developed a project to “share our stock of remaining outdated Polaroid film with a few artists and photographer friends to do a project and call it The Last Boxes.”*
The results have just been published in the 46th issue of Petronio’s SELF SERVICE. The Spring/Summer 2017 issue is a mix of new and old, and includes the work of Robert Frank, GuyBourdin, Nobuyoshi Araki, Bruce Weber, Collier Schorr, Peter Beard, CarloMollino, Craig McDean, and Peter Lindbergh.
A back-of-the-book section includes additional Polaroids by EdwardEnninful, M/M Paris, India Mahdavi, Fabian Baron, Saskia deBrauw, Julien d’Ys, Kate Moss, Alasdair McLellan, Snowdon, Susan Koller, David Sims, and more.
Over the course of his career, Lindbergh has taken inspiration for his photography from modern dance, early German and East European cinema and photography, as well as his own personal history, resulting in a bold, elemental photographic language. With a minimum of artifice, spare styling, and openness to improvisation, he allows the innate character and natural beauty of his female subjects to emerge.
Until November 12.
