There are over 200 images included in the show, and they offer insights into Wenders’ daily life and work at the time, as well as into the nature of Polaroid photography itself, and how it has influenced imagemaking in our modern, digital age.
The photos are displayed in loose groupings, occasionally around Wenders’ films. Two of his movies have featured Polaroids as a dominant prop: in The American Friend, Dennis Hopper snaps himself repeatedly using a Polaroid camera in one scene, while in the road movie Alice in the City, the central character is shown taking numerous Polaroid photographs. Both films make appearances here, the making of them documented by Wenders himself in Polaroid, with a young Dennis Hopper shown looking enigmatic and glorious, the perfect movie star.
