Andrei Tarkovsky – ‘Polaroids’

Rare ethereal Polaroids with emotional depth made by the Russian filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky compiled in the book “Instant Light: Tarkovsky Polaroids and Sculpting in Time” published by Thames & Hudson. Landscapes and intimate moments about his home, family, friends and places in Russia and Italy made between 1979 and 1984, capturing with his unique aesthetic visual language the ‘flight’ of time and life as a reflection.

“Never try to convey your idea to the audience. It is a thankless and senseless task. Show them life, and they’ll find within themselves the means to assess and appreciate it.”
