Editorial Reviews

Review

The Polaroid is like the photographer's version of the painter's sketch- it's a rough blueprint rather than a finished product. So there's something very intimate about Diego Uchitel's new book, Polaroids (Damiani), which shows how much art there is to a medium that wasn't even meant to be seen. (Editors Departures Magazine 2013-01-01)

Anyone who has ever posed for a Polaroid can recognize the snap of the collapsible camera and the buzz of the print. Having done the drill thousands of times for major names and up-and-comers, fashion photographer Diego Uchitel now has a book to prove it.
"Polaroids" features 240-plus never-before-seen shots that have been reproduced in their original untouched form - traces of tape, hints of wear and tear and typically muted hues included. These unrehearsed and painterly images helped Uchitel to define his style. (Rosemary Feitelberg Women's Wear Daily 2012-11-01)

Uchitel has collected 25 years' worth of these photographic sketches in a new book, "Diego Uchitel: Polaroids" (Damiani, $50). The project, he explains, happened organically. "Today, layouts are done on computers. But back then I'd put one Polaroid on the wall next to another one. Four or five shoots later, they'd start spreading." And so it grew. The book's images, culled from years of portrait and fashion sittings, are presented bearing their age in elegant fashion, exhibiting remnants of tape, scratches and fingerprints, like relics from another time. (Bruce Pask The New York Times Online 2012-10-21)

This book is truly a work of art! The details are beautiful, you almost want to pick the polaroids right off the page! I have always been a fan of Diego Uchitel's work so I was very excited to get my hands on this book. It would make a terrific gift for any photography lover on your list.

Wonderful eye and great editing. Great illustration of the art of fast photography. In a way very applicable to the cell phone photography generation.

I beautifully designed "coffee table" book from cover to photos. I rated it at 4 stars since I have owned even more striking books by various photographers that I like better. It is an overall gorgeous retrospective of the artists creativity.

Diego Uchitel's book Polaroids is a must for people who are passionate about photography. In this era of digital media, Diego's book takes us into a romantic and mysterious world, a world he captured for 25 years with his 4 x 5 format camera.The range of his celebrity portraits is remarkable and impressive.Uchitel's fashion polaroids contain a nostalgic and playful quality and his use of light is elegant and dramatic.
