The Creative History of Polaroid with John Reuter

In conjunction with the Wadsworth Atheneum’s exhibit of Patti Smith’s “Camera Solo” John Reuter, long time Polaroid artist and Director of the 20×24 studio explores the spirit of creativity spawned by Polaroid materials in the 1960s and 70s. From Marie Consindas, Lucas Samaras, Rosamond Purcell, Robert Mapplethorpe and others through to Patti Smith, Reuter explores what was so special about working with Polaroid materials that allowed non-photographers and photographers alike to broaden their creative horizons with this amazing medium.
