Gary Baseman's photograph is part of a group show for Polaroid
at the Impossible Project Space NYC
. "Instant Revolution" features photography by Baseman and four other contemporary artists, James Franco, Maripol, Mary Ellen Mark, and Jennifer Juniper Stratford. The exhibition is the first in an upcoming series of artistic collaborations throughout 2012 that honor the launch of the Polaroid Classic line. The new product line celebrates the seventy-five year legacy of the instant film and camera company.
The photographs in the show were captured with the last original Polaroid Spectra film production from 2008. Baseman explains his image process as, "I wanted to use the camera the way I originally used such a device in the 1970s and 80s...to capture an immediate memory. My art is about discovering one's "True Self," and Polaroid
cameras have been an important tool in assisting in this truth-finding and free expression."
"Instant Revolution" opens at Impossible Project Space NYC on February 9th
