The Polaroid Magic

June 6th – September 6th 2009
Italian Center of Author Photography – Bibbiena (Ar)

The Italian Center of Author Photography proposes a rich study program on the works of some of the most important authors of the Italian photographic panorama to understand how the interpretation of a medium can transform a series of techniques and materials into pure creative force.

Polaroid is not just indicated as a brand, but a whole world of films of every kind, traditional and revolutionary cameras, instruments, manual and material practices that have crossed the history of Photography, creating an explosion of emotion, meaning, creation, which has no comparison between the various techniques known to date.

The world of fashion is presented by Gian Paolo Barbieri and Giovanni Gastel to complete the story of an exciting and curious story, marking the most diverse applications of the medium.
