Over the course of two weeks in 2014, photographer Paul Hoi visited Iceland alone with his 4×4 Polaroid camera in hand. During this trip, he travelled along the legendary Ring Road which connects, from one settlement to the next, the entirety of Nordic country. His series Psychedelia: Expired Polaroid’s from Iceland act as memories to the surreal and diverse microclimates he discovered there.
It’s the small things that compel Los Angeles-based photographer Lauren Pisano to reach for her camera. It can be a gust of wind, the shadows of twilight, or the ineffable twinge of something working in her subconscious. She goes through her daily life collecting ordinary moments, memorizing the details so that she can re-stage them later. Ultimately, she fulfills the role both of photographer and subject, employing her self-portraiture as a means of witnessing her routine from the outside, of alternately detaching from and reattaching to her own idea of self.
