Moment and Time Photography by Manuel Nogueira

Posted in Uncategorized by strytllng on May 11, 2010

Searching through the internet for no reason sometimes pays off well, doesn’t it? I came across this photographer’s homepage and read the alerting words: OH! MY POLAROID! and couldn’t resist but to click on the link. The idea is simple but the craft is great. Models holding their own Polaroids from a testshoot. The whole picture makes a “Making OF” obsolete. Both, the testpolaroid and the actual photo taken by photographer Manuel Nogueira, show us the pre and -now phase of a shooting. I also find the reference to time interesting in terms of subjects and places. We see these gorgeous girls “now” which was “then” holding an object which refers to a former version of themselves. The Polaroidmodel will not exist by the time the photos were taken neither do the models on Nogueira on the pictures we see now.  The girls will have moved from their fixed pose that they gave the camera,  may have had different life experiences and most certainly they will have aged. OH DARN YOU LIVE! But what a beautiful homage to bypassing little moments.
