Instant Light: Tarkovsky Polaroids
Andrej Tarkovskij received his polaroid camera in the 1970s from Antonioni.
“Tarkovsky often reflected on the way that time flies and wanted to stop it, even with these quick Polaroid shots. The melancholy of seeing things for the last time is the highly mysterious and poetic essence that these images leave with us. It is as though Andrei wanted to transmit his own enjoyment quickly to others. And they feel like a fond farewell.”
Tonino Guerra, from the Introduction
