Indeed, the versatility of instant photography is on full display as we see multiple artistic points of view and interpretations of the medium itself. While some images are straightforward photographs, others play with multiple exposures, such as Ben Fraternale’s trippy blue-red multiple portraits with 3-D glasses. Some artists also intercede upon the polaroid print and introduced techniques of emulsion transfer, multimedia, and collage. Czech photographer Noah Zyle, in response to the theme “Decomposed”, went so far as to microwave his prints to impart an element of decay to his triptych “Apples for the Accursed Poet.”

An interesting aspect of experiencing an exhibition like this in the flesh is being able to see the themed images displayed together, rather than the individual image viewing which is inherent to the social media feed. When viewed like this in the same space, a dialog between the images develops: the photographs not only respond to the theme, they respond to each other in a way that could not have been premeditated by these artists working separately, thousands of miles apart. Each display becomes its own little narrative play.

Though the instant and analog community mourns the loss of Penny Felts and her inspiring creative spirit, the 12:12 Project is keeping her legacy and her love of instant photography alive. Long-time 12:12 contributor, and Analog Forever writer, Lisa Toboz has penned a loving tribute to Penny and her work that will be published in our upcoming print issue, now available for pre-order.
