Peder Lund has the pleasure of welcoming you to the exhibition Lucas Samaras: Polaroids from the 70s. The exhibition shows a selection of central works from Samaras’ Polaroids from the 1970s in which Samaras himself is the subject matter, photographed in his studio and home.
Samaras began using a Polaroid 360 camera in 1969, which gave rise to the series Auto-Polaroid. In 1973, the Polaroid Corporation gave him an SX-70 camera, which he used in his subsequent exploration of the medium, during which he further manipulated his motifs. Such manipulation is especially pronounced in the series Photo-Transformations.
