Publisher's Description

The sequel to Miles Aldridge’s (born 1964) Please Return Polaroid (2016), this book presents new and vintage Polaroids from the British photographer’s more than 20-year archive, in a seemingly random sequence shaped by a dreamlike logic and surprising juxtapositions.

Please Please Return Polaroid explores Aldridge’s dedication to analogue processes where cut-and-paste is still a manual process, made with scissors, gaffer tape, intuition and not a little patience. Aldridge continues to use Polaroids as part of his work-in-progress “sketches,” often scratching, tearing and taping them together, even drawing over them; each mark part of the creative act.

Known for creating immaculate photos of a less than perfect world, Aldridge revels in these unpolished images, transforming some into extreme enlargements filling double pages with their reworked and damaged surfaces.
