After hearing news that Fujifilm has ended the production of the last peel-apart polaroid film, Short Stories could be the last exhibition of it's kind. Shot over 12 months, Norwegian photographer Anja Niemi worked solely with a 1970s Polaroid camera, which resulted in over 500 polaroids. Niemi then carefully narrowed down the images to create eight dreamy, pastel-tinted short stories portraying a string of connected fictional characters, objects, landscapes and interiors. The photographs will be on display at The Little Black Gallery, as well as in a book published under the same name.
Short Stories by Anja Niemi is at The Little Black Gallery, 13A Park Walk, Chelsea, London SW10 0AJ until 16 June.
