Polarémi.

Tonight I checked out a photo show by a friend, Rémi Thériault. A show of Polaroid instant photographs. The show was called Instant Stories and is on at La Petite Mort Gallery in the market for a few more days. I had a feeling I was going to like the stuff, so I went down before it opened to be the first to see it. It was the right decision because I really liked the imagery, especially the triptic below of some random vegetation - not so much for the subject matter, but for the cool happy accidents of the expired emulsion. When Polaroid emulsion is either old, too cold or too hot, it can do weird and wonky things, which I really love - so much that I bought the series of three. (I just love how the three work together, and I'm super anxious to frame them)
