Polaroid Resurrection-6

Why: In today's age of overwhelming digital technology it was refreshing to see creative individuals band together and bring back analogue photography back into the limelight. Brought together by the cool guys of Film Never Die, Polaroid Resurrection shows us how the simplistic and rustic look of Polaroid film can be an excellent outlet for creativity. Although this exhibition has finished be sure to keep an eye out for future exhibitions Magnet Galleries will be hosting. Primarily focused on photography, their past and upcoming work is truly something special. Oh, and cool folk at Film Never Die make some damn fine coffee at their cafe, which is conveniently located right next to the gallery.
