Alex Moore is a New York City based artist currently focusing exclusively on polaroid photography. Working with an analog format of photography, he employs classical compositions to capture the energy of his subjects in their purest form.
All forms of photography revolve around the click of a button to capture a moment in time forever. It is the type of camera one uses, the subject matter one choses, and the final display of the work that sets one photographer apart from another. In Instant, Moore exposes a series of 35mm, 120mm, and polaroid photographs that he shot around New Mexico, Mexico and in Africa. In an overly-saturated digital world, Moore choses to take a step back in time and shoot strictly with analog and instant polaroid film. The time and effort that is required to shoot with these types of vintage film cameras (some dating back to the 1970s) forces Moore to carefully plan out every aspect of his images before taking them. Furthermore, Moore does not edit any of his images after taking them – what you see is what you get – unfiltered, un-cropped and enlarged prints straight out of the darkroom.
