WIM WENDERS AT THE PHOTOGRAPHERS’ GALLERY
Personal and previously unseen Polaroid photographs by Wim Wenders are the focus of a major new exhibition developed in collaboration with the Wim Wenders Foundation which opens at The Photographers' Gallery, London this October.
Instant Stories: Wim Wenders’ Polaroids encompasses portraits of cast and crew, friends and family, behind-the scenes, still-lives, street-photography and landscapes, all taken between the early 1970s and mid-80s. Alongside diary-like impressions and homages to his artistic inspirations, including Fassbinder and Warhol, the small format images take us on a literal and metaphoric journey through Europe, the US and more.
On the occasion of the exhibition a new book, Sofort Bilder/Instant Stories, will be published by Schirmer/Mosel and Thames & Hudson, featuring texts by the artist and over 300 colour plates.
