A coffee table flick through
There's many many polaroids contained within the pages. The layout is simple and attractive so that the focus is on the polaroids and your own interpretation of it. The title of the polaroids are all contained in a catalogue at the end of the book, adding the experience of enjoying a picture for what it is.
Art, i suppose, is left to one's own interpretation...I found some of the snaps beautiful, ethereal, haunting. Whereas there are one's I felt were just bad taste, and I could imagine many, many more snaps better than it.
I'd say coming across a truely beautiful picture in this book is pretty much a treasure hunt itself...there isn't many.
Best left on the coffee table for a casual flick through. by Felix Li
