Australian Composer Polaroid Project
Photographer: Jim Rolon
Jim Rolon's Australian Composer Polaroid Project took him to meet 40 composers and sound artists over a couple of months in 2015. The Australian Music Centre is now exhibiting these portraits for the first time as a series, as part of the AMC's 40th anniversary celebrations.
Jim says about his chosen technique for the project: 'The main reason I've done this series with these materials, is the unpredictability of instant film. The process, from a photographer's point of view, provides an organic, heartfelt connection to the image'. Read more about Jim's work on this series and his meetings with 41 unique artists in this interview on Resonate. The project's Facebook page also documents some of these meetings and the locations they took place in.
