A Book of Polaroids

James T. Murray

A compilation by Diego Uchitel sheds new light.

The Polaroid is like the photographer’s version of the painter’s sketch—it’s a rough blueprint rather than a finished product. So there’s something very intimate about Diego Uchitel’s new book, Polaroids (Damiani), which shows how much art there is to a medium that wasn’t even meant to be seen. $50; damianieditore.com.
