Ahh, the polaroid- the quick flash, shake, peel and voila of the beloved instantaneous image-maker is the timeless trope of countless cheesy grins. In our simulacra-riddled copy of a meta-copy digital age, there is something sincere in an entirely unique and irreplacable analog copy of a photo. Sure, I have thousands of digital files amassed on my computer. But the photos that I cherish are mostly those small, square little guys called polaroids, or to use their proper name, Instant Land Photography. With polaroid’s impending death nearing, thankfully someone has taken a stand. ISM Community will be opening an entirely polaroid exhibition entitled “Instant Gratification” at Copro Gallery this Saturday, from 7 to 11pm. With hundreds of ceiling to floor polaroids, the exhibition creates awareness about this waning art form. Flyer and more polaroids after the jump!
