Photographs by Bjørn Sterri.
Pilver Press, Oslo, 2010. 156 pp., 61 color illustrations, 12¼x10¾".
Polaroid Work is the summation of over twenty years of obsessively photographing himself and his family, day after day, with the Polaroid camera. Through beautifully crafted visual metaphors , it achingly reveals the private issues of family: adoption, marriage and divorce, birth and bereavement, love, loss and mortality.
“Father and son – cheek by jowl and face to face. Dad and the next generation, side by side. A reminder that the world turns, leaving nothing behind, nothing unchanged.”
From the introduction by Barbara Hitchcock, Former Director, The Polaroid Collection.
