Mary Ellen Mark: Nimetön (1987). Polaroid Spectra. WestLicht kokoelma, Wien. © Mary Ellen Mark.

August and September 2012


Accessible atmospheric pictures from a legendary collection. The exhibition presents the renowned international material from Ansel Adams to Andy Warhol. In addition, the first ever cross-section of Finnish Polaroid imagery is on display for the first time. The selection includes self-portraits, still-lifes and collages. The art of playful snapping and the charm of the 70s and 80s colours are the common denominators for these works. Polaroid’s successor, the Impossible Project is also present.
