One Shot Fano Jazz Festival 2011
When I was asked to contribute to the Fano Jazz Festival
in Italy I wanted to reflect the emotions of Jazz with its
vibrant energy, spontaneity and improvisation. Feeling this
was best reflected in the photographic medium of Instant
Polaroid, I dusted off my 70's Polaroid camera, some
old colour film and bought some new black and white.
The camera was adapted to take a ring flash and was
perfect for multiple exposures.
Immediately after each concert the polaroids were exhibited.
This continued for the duration of the Festival. It was as much
a performance off stage as on stage, giving an intimate and
emotional representation for all to enjoy even if they had
missed the previous nights performance.
All the photographs are on permenant show at the Fano Jazz Club.
