«The whole Polaroid process had nothing to do with our contemporary experience. The object it produced was real, couldn’t be modified or repeated. That’s why it made you think that you’d stolen this tiny image-object from the world. You transferred a piece of the past into the present.» Words of Wim Wenders, author of approximately 200 intimate, personal Polaroid shots on display, for the first time, at the The Photographer’s Gallery. Instant Stories photographs taken between the early Seventies and the mid-Eighties by the German director that created important works such as Alice in the City and Wings of Desire. In this private take, which also touches the career of the director, born in 1945, there are portraits of friends and family, glimpses of streets, landscapes, the charm of New York and American television, the dizzying views from rooftops. A world that reflects the poetic vision, the aesthetic aspirations of this star of the New German Cinema.
The fair celebrates 30 years with an edition that is full of surprises. On display, art from Modernism to today, with 131 international galleries and an art exhibition of works from Britain’s public collections.
