Hace unos días hojeando una Marie Claire me topé con las polaroids de Diego Uchitel, un fotógrafo argentino afincado en Nueva York y enseguida pensé en compartir su trabajo con vosotros.


Few days ago, leafing through a Marie Claire mag I found some polaroids by Diego Uchitel, an argentinian photographer based in New York and I instantly thought about sharing his work with you.

Es habitual ver sus fotos de moda y publicidad en revistas como Elle, Vogue, Vanity Fair o Rolling Stone. Su trabajo desprende elegancia y transmite cierta sensación de lujo. Sin embargo, mis favoritas son las que forman parte de su colección de polaroids.


You can see his fashion and advertising photos quite often in magazines such as Elle, Vogue, Vanity Fair or Rolling Stone. His work exudes elegance and radiates some sense of luxury. However, my favorites are among his polaroid collection.

Como muchos otros fotógrafos, Uchitel usaba las instantáneas para preparar las sesiones de fotos. Eran meras pruebas antes de la foto "definitiva". Empezó colgando en la pared algunas de esas pruebas a modo de layout improvisado y en poco tiempo acabaron forrando las paredes de su estudio como un enorme mosaico de retratos.


Like many photographers used to do, Uchitel used to take the snapshots to prepare the shootings. Polaroids were just a test before the final photo. He started hanging some of those tests as an improvised layout and soon later the polaroids were lining the walls of his studio as a great mosaic of portraits.

El formato Polaroid añade una gran dosis de naturalidad al trabajo de Uchitel, sin abandonar su elegancia habitual.


Polaroid photos add a natural look to Uchitel's work, without leaving his usual elegance.

¿Qué os ha parecido? ¿Llegasteis a usar cámaras Polaroid? Yo suelo usar alguna aplicación digital que imita el acabado Polaroid, supongo que hoy en día las fotos digitales han acabado sustituyendo la espontaneidad de las Polaroids... Pero de pequeña me parecía mágico poder hacer una foto y conseguir una copia en papel en cuestión de minutos...


What do you think? Have you ever use a Polaroid camera? I use some digital apps that imitate the polaroid look, I guess digital photos have finally replaced the spontaneity of Polaroids... When I was a child, I used to think it was magical to take a photo and get an instant hardcopy after few minutes...
