Memoir of Surface: Bruce Tindale

November 1st - December 23rd, 2020

Memoir of Surface presents a collection of Polaroids taken between 1986 and 1998.
Photographer and artist, Bruce Tindale, captures daily life through this means of instant photography akin to current practices with camera phones.

Polaroid photography was revolutionary in its time. The first, and for a long time the only, way to immediately see an image after it was taken.
The medium with its limitations creates space for creative intervention as seen in Nicky and James, Annadale in which James’s head is blurred creating a sense of movement and sound within the image.

Fuelled by nostalgia for film and analogue technology, our collective fascination with Polaroid shows no danger of abating.
