Art Description

Photography: Polaroid and Color on Paper.

For nearly 30 years, photographer Brien Lautman has been working exclusively with Polaroid instant and B&W 35mm film to document the people and places of the West. By design, he often chooses a soft focus for his Polaroid work, which elicits singular colors and an intentional ambiguity regarding subject and space.

His limited-edition work is produced through a large-format giclee print method on archival papers. Original Polaroid images are reproduced in large format with a 4X5 camera outfitted with a Betterlight digital scan back, and the finest Schneider lenses. This generates a custom color or B&W profile, ensuring consistent tonal and color fidelity.
