If you are in London this weekend, go check out The Polaroid Show over at Doomed Gallery in Dalston.
Prints of Polaroids from Adam Void will be featured along side of work from 9 other artists from around the globe, including: ANDREW MILLAR, BEN PALMER, CRAIG MAMMANO, IAN DELEON, INGRID NORDAHL, KATARZYNA RONIEK, MATHEUS CHIARATTI, MICHAEL MCCRAW, and YANN FAUCHER.
Part of the London Analogue Festival, Doomed Gallery celebrates the world of the Polaroid.
We received over 250 polaroid images from 100 photographers from our callout to photographers that wanted to take part in this festival. As well as showing the works via video we have selected 10 of our favourite submissions to exhibit in print.
2 photographers who have heavily used Polaroid within their art will also be exhibiting:
Kevin Mason is a fashion and documentary photographer, whose Polaroid work sprung to life through graffiti culture and then moved on to the beauty of fashion photography and the documentation of life and love.
Joel Chernin is a London based artist whose Polaroid work crosses over into art and design, using instant photography to design album covers, computer games and viral films. He will be talking about his Polaroid camera collection and instant photography work.
Opening: Friday 12th 6pm -9pm / Saturday 4pm-8pm
Talks: Friday 12th 7.30pm - 8.30pm
If you don't know who DROID 907 is, then you are living under a rock.
DROID is one of the most prolific and personality-filled extreme graffiti writers of our generation.
He's an amazing friend and brother, who has traveled with me for thousands of miles on the road and in the head.
He's also an amazing zine maker. Total quality all the time: action shots, twisted writing, full-scale attack. This monster will tear down the walls.

Late to post about this, but the show has been extended. So come to the second opening Friday. July 4th. There will be special surprises at this opening, along with the 777 Polaroids from the last eleven years of Adam Void's life.
I am pleased to be a part of this amazing exhibit, coordinated by Earth First!, in support of eco-prisoners who have been jailed while taking actions that are morally just and virtuous, however are against the laws of a corrupt US political and legal system. Please support this project.
The second annual Never Alone online art auction launches on June 11, the International Day of Solidarity with Marie Mason, Eric McDavid and all Eco-prisoners. Marie and Eric are two environmental and social justice activists who are both serving near 20 year sentences for their involvement in environmental struggle in the United States.
All artworks will be exhibited and available for online purchase until June 30. Funds raised will be used to support Marie, Eric and other eco-prisoners’ needs.
There are 24 artists involved this year, including a number of prisoners who have contributed artworks from behind prison walls. All of the artworks focus on themes of wilderness, liberation, state captivity and our relationship with the natural world and other animals.
Marie Mason, a prolific visual artist and musician, has contributed two paintings from a restrictive unit inside Carswell Federal Prison in Texas. Her paintings depict aspects of the natural world that are shared with her by friends from the outside who are continuing the struggle to defend ecological systems. Another prisoner who has contributed artwork is Jose Heladio Villarreal, a hunger striker and long term resident of Pelican Bay prison’s notorious isolation unit.
A great number of artists on the other side of prison walls, including members of the Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative and Beehive Design Collective, have contributed a range of stunning prints, paintings and drawings.
The Never Alone exhibition is a beautiful visual representation of people’s dedication for defending the natural world, and the rights of people to stand in defense of it without facing excessive punishment from the State. It’s also a passionate expression of solidarity with those who have fallen prey to the waves of repression we see political activists facing all over the world.
Starting on June 11, the Never Alone exhibition will be able to be viewed online around the world at neveraloneart.org until June 30.
