Fine artist Maurizio Galimberti shoots portraits of celebrities by making a composite of Polaroid photographs. His access to famous figures adds to the allure of his images. They appear to show an intimate and unseen side of each public figure. He considers himself an “instant artist”, no doubt giving props to the process of instant polaroids he uses to create his exhibition pieces.
The work also reminds me of fine artist Chuck Close’s Self-Portrait in Nine Parts from 1979.
Check out his portraits of Johnny Depp, Sting, and Elle Fanning.
In what ways could you use polaroids to expand your photography?
