Chris Makos – Polaroids

Part of what makes Christopher Makos’s Polaroids so awesome is that, in addition to capturing an ephemeral nostalgic glow (I mean, isn’t that what Polaroids are all about?), the subjects themselves are those elusive legends of a bygone era. Makos has an archive of hundreds of Polaroids taking during the 70′s and 80′s, jet-setting between New York and Los Angeles, partying with fashion designers, celebrities and artists. He was actually taking the photos that most current polaroid photographers are trying to mimic. Basically, he’s like the king of the Polaroid.

Original SX-70 Polaroids by Chris Makos will be featured in the show Polaroids at the Christopher Henry Gallery in NYC from April 22-May 23, 2010. A new book of Polaroids, published my Photology with text by Calvin Klein, is available at the exhibition (a sneak peek PDF can be downloaded here).

  1. I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got how to remove freckles permanently at home say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of
    content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

    よせばいいのに母がしっかりエントリーなのでちょっと撮影がてらいくとへんな顔(笑)と無言のまま背中をコツコツされてしまいました。^^;
    いきなりプチプラエクササイズとは思いませんでしたがノーメイク隠して走ると季節の風がたまんなかったですwww
    いやはや乾燥肌の季節それなりに気温も上がりましたね!
    今年こそはきになる紫外線の季節がやってきます!
    やっぱり必要な日焼け止めについて困るのはもうやめたいですね。
