Yeah. this place was pretty great. Small art fair in milwaukee. Went this year for the afternoon and wondered… 1. why I had never gone before. and 2. why I hadn’t got a hotel room and gone to the dance party afterwards. Next year. oh and 3. why didn’t i buy that Eric May painting to benefit old gold ?

Polanoir is a gallery in Vienna devoted totally to polaroids.  Read more on their website about how the gallery came into being.

Here are some reasons they love polaroid photography:

  • the one and only photographic medium that produces real unique originals.
  • the most analog pictures possible – recognisable at first sight because of structure, colors and the unique Polaroid framing.
  • pictures that bring back coincidences into photography. An inimitable combination of analog chemistry and instant visible results.
  • pictures that can be manipulated in many ways, using unique creative gizmo’s for an amazing number of innovative techniques and projects.
  • pictures that are immortal proofs to express the powerful dynamic visualization of Polaroid films.
  • Polaroids are an endangered species in this digital world – making them very special indeed.

Currently the gallery has 18 international artists but they claim to be adding new ones.  If you are interested in joining POLANOIR, you can contact them at office@polanoir.com.

A lot of it is really really animated, making the real objects in the room stand out and look very…real. It’s like living in a cartoon!


These are cool too. Paper is so awesome. And tricky:



Their stuff for babies is the best, by far:
