From Polaroid to professional. Early in his career Robert Mapplethorpe was influenced by a range of artists including assemblage artist Joseph Cornell and dada artist Marcel Duchamp. He experimented with mixed media collages, using images cut from books and magazines. In the introduction to his publication Certain People: A Book of Portraits 14 1985, Mapplethorpe is quoted as saying that his self-portraits express the part of him that is most self-confident. The cover image Mapplethorpe chose for this publication is the work Self Portrait 1980.

In 1948, shortly after he had introduced instant photography to the public, Land hired the West Coast landscape photographer Ansel Adams as a consultant. In addition, Land’s fledgling company decided to hire a few contemporary photographers to use its equipment and to report their findings.

Kruger constructs a parallel between the biblical creation story, represented by the delicate touch of God's finger to Adam's, and that of a masterpiece of Western art. She expertly contrasts the strident, direct address of the text.

She expertly contrasts the strident, direct address of the text with the soft luminosity and heavenly focus of Michelangelo’s fresco.

In the late 1960s, Polaroid Corporation founder Edwin Land initiated a project to invite more than 800 artists around the world to shoot on Polaroid film, supplying them with the company's latest products. Over the ensuing decades, more than 4,500 works, by photographers ranging from Ansel Adams to Andy Warhol, were presented to the company and found their way into Polaroid's International Collection at their European headquarters near Frankfurt am Main. In 2008 Polaroid went bankrupt. The company was bought by the Impossible Project (who promptly invented a new kind of instant film at the Polaroid factory in Enschede) and its legendary collection was acquired by the Westlicht Schauplatz museum in Vienna. From Polaroid to Impossible celebrates both this acquisition and the launch of a new Polaroid collection spearheaded by Westlicht and the Impossible Project. It offers the first overview of the European Polaroid Collection, and includes selected Polaroid masterpieces by figures such as Ansel Adams, Barbara Crane, Giselle Freund, Gottfried Helnwein, Sally Mann, Robert Mapplethorpe, Helmut Newton, Stephen Shore, Aaron Siskind, Andy Warhol, William Wegman and Minor White; artists like Miyako Ishiuchi, Andreas Mahl and Catherine Wagner, who made specialties of the medium; plus newly commissioned Impossible instant photography by contemporary artists such as Nobuyoshi Araki, David Leventhal, Mary Ellen Mark and Stefanie Schneider. Numerous images are reproduced in full color at 1:1 scale, making this volume a luscious and giftworthy celebration of the charm of the Polaroid photograph.

I'm right there with you, Ludido. I looked forward to this book ever since I first heard about it and it's not only disappointing, it's totally awful. I think Warhol might have gotten a laugh knowing the only interesting shot was the one of him on the cover!
It's looking like I can give this book zero stars, because that's what it deserves...crazy bad! OK...had to give it a star to have my review posted...but just pretend it isn't there...

What a great treasure trove waiting to be opened ,but the cover tells all ,striking at first,its large ,but after a minute its just second rate Magritte,oh its ever so pathetically clever , !nside it doesnt get much better,although some signature pieces and artists are there,Sandi Fellmans wonderful tattoo close-ups look washed out compared to the original book,Levental's small scale studies for later use on the big camera are quite interesting.Which brings us to John Reuter,man in charge of the big camera,full of integrity,ushering these art clowns to to another 'series ' of banality.(cute dogs etc.)It is such a wonderful idea for the polaroid company to think big and let artists use the limited edition ,large size,camera to explore instant examples of their vision.To my my eyes the art stars of their time showed up ,with a dealers attitude and made just more of what they had always made: "attitude"!Thanks to all thats good here in the world ,Helmut Newton sticks to his schwanz and chase and continues to see that polaroid's" instant gratification is perfect for the illicit erotic shot ,but he has style ..What are all these other,basic, crotch shots doing here ?Overall these instant pictures are without conviction ,even Walker Evans's example is downright sad ,perhaps showing the cards this book holds ,include Warhol & Walker Evans ,then bring on the mostly dreck,apologies to Joyce Tennisson who came prepared and looks great.Hatje Ganz is a great publisher with many fabulous books to its credit ,aye mates ,this one is a dog .What would an interesting book on the polaroid phenomenon be like ?First:the folk art part of polaroid,collect all the crotch shots from the far corners of the earth and send them into the cloud,we would all be spared ,for a while at least.Or expanding the snapshot aspect of polaroids,the turtle in the road ,accidents,funerals,birth and babies,close-ups,stuff!!Then question which photographers came close to using the potential of this instant feedback,before digital made it commonplace?Who knows who they were but inquiring minds would like to know ,but if its pathetic and full of ART,spare me.But ,of course there is great stuff out here ,there always is ,just dig .Its probably shocking to think that polaroid is already scrapbook material,but for the pinhole addicts and gauzy ,out of focus,color romanticists ,its now just a "look" .Sadly its time to not be casual ,as here,but to stare ,enjoy and evaluate.
Hatje Ganz ,please do another book ,skip ol' Andy ,and give us us one to hold and keep .Thanks
