THE CHOCOLATE POLAROID EXHIBITION
BY MARC LAGRANGE
About the Chocolate Polaroid series:
This is a very limited series of enlarged original Chocolate polaroid photos. Polaroid Chocolate is one of the rarest films Polaroid ever made, producing chocolate brown images with a warm texture, which completes Marc’s aesthetics perfectly. It’s like Black and White but warmer.
The immediate image of the Polaroid Chocolate film became very important for Marc. Like many photographers did at the time, he used the immediacy of the peel apart- films for test snapshots of a scene but he quickly started using it as a real medium.
The Polaroid film eventually became his signature trademark. ‘Photos are taken by photographers not by cameras’ was his saying and within this series of never before published work one can easily discern his particular photographic style and his quest to bring beauty to his images and emotion to an audience.
