The Photographer's Gallery, London

During my week back in London in November, I decided to pay a visit to the Photographer's Gallery in Oxford Street, London.

There was a very interesting exhibit on the top floor about storytelling through Polaroid images. The project was called 'Instant Stories' and featured Wim Wenders's work from the 1940s. There were over 200 different polaroid images framed all around the exhibition room, split up into over 20 titled sections. There was also a short film playing which explained that these photographs were being taken when Polaroids were a very new invention, meaning that barely anyone understood the concept of a Polaroid Instant image. In this video, it showed him selling his car for cheap in order to purchase more film to fund his photography desires.

There were also many other exhibitions on that were interesting, however Wim's project caught my attention the most.
