robert polidori

Black & white photography can be striking, but photographer Robert Polidori enters a completely different realm with his vivid, detailed, and engrossing photos. The Montreal native's photographs have such a high degree of detail it seems similar to high definition television and movies, where every tiny blemish can be seen. Likewise, Polidori's work seizes not only the atmosphere of the subject, but also more minute elements like peeling wallpaper on the abandonded nurseries in Chernobyl or a remaining Southern Comfort advertisment on the wall of a living room that was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. Some of Polidori's work is currently on display at the Musee d'Art Contemporain de Montreal, he has numerous books of his work in various countries and cities, and his work is often published in The New Yorker magazine and Vogue.
