Frank Sebastian Hansen crisscrossed the globe with his Polaroid camera from Copenhagen to Cancun, capturing waiting jungle gyms and shimmering swimming pools. The book flows with subtle formal connections in color and shape from one image to the next. A headless blue and red bust of a torso faces a pair of red and blue graffiti portraits. The s-curves of beach loungers mirror the swan neck of a folded hotel towel. These Polaroid embrace an accelerated nostalgia as they become souvenirs of passing travel observations.
