“The contribution that Polaroid has made to fine arts photography is both incredibly broad

and deep, and no single exhibition could do it complete justice,“ Jim Fitts, co-curator

states. “Instant Connections focuses on bringing together a number of photographers

whose work demonstrates just how diverse a medium Polaroid was. There is no question

that the work of each artist in the exhibition stands on its own, but it is fascinating to

compare and contrast it with the work of other artists in the exhibition.”
