In this post awaits you an impressive, kinda magical selection of Polaroids taken by Sergio Lins from Brazil. ☆
“Polaroids became my obsession since I first watched Memento by the amazing Christopher Nolan. Since then I delve myself within the instant photography world. Bought my SX-70 and began shooting. That was my first step into photography.
“Moonlight transpires a melancholic and sad atmosphere. Placing the subject into direct moonlight, the models reflexive expression invites the viewer into her thoughtful yet mysterious grasps.”
“Study is a 4 photographs series involving books and knowledge transmitted by the old-looking ambiance. The model transmits peace and tenderness (especially in study #3) in which the viewer don’t get curious about the reading nor the book, instead he/she rest his/her eyes upon the model observing her reading standing outside of the frame in literally an observer position creating some affection for the character. Study #2 transmits the same feeling and study #4, the last of the series creates a direct contact with the viewer. There is no book been read, instead they are all standing in the shelves on the background. This photograph transmits a more intense contact between the viewer and the character/model.”
“Woods #4 is part of a 5-photo series. My favorites are woods #4 and woods #3. I haven’t send woods #3 for it contains nudity and is not accepted by the website. Woods tries to place the viewer amongst angels. Two angels looking for each other while lost in the vastness of the world, one looking down more attached to earth and the other one more thoughtful, looking up the skies.”
“Write Me is another favorite, which describes as the title says: A Character yet to be written. The typewriter faces the viewer as if he/she were typing the story. The fabric involving the model represents the paper into which the story is written, hiding the characters face which is not yet defined by the writer (viewer). It can be anyone.”
Many thanks! ☆
