shake it like a polaroid picture

today i took advantage of the whitney museum pay what you wish policy on fridays after work (6-9). ever the patron des arts, i paid 5 bucks. i read that there was a polaroid exhibit there and as a serial museum photography skipper, i thought this might be my speed. between you and me, i don't know what it is about photographs in museums that wear me out but this one managed to hold my attention. maybe i too felt swept up amidst the great polaroid panic of 2008 (!!) or maybe they were just really beautiful.

i suggest checking out mapplethorpe's work before it peaces on sept 14.
