A POLAROID STORY x ANATTITUDE MAG
They grow SO fast these days… don’t they?
As promised. Full report of Anittude The Exhibition with LOTS of pictures. Who wants to read long stories behind a computer in this weather right? If you just joined and don’t have a clue what I’m talking about, please catch up here.
When chief editor of Anatittude Magazine JEE NICE asked me to participate in her exposition I was more than happy to join. After all, It’s good to unite forces and do collaborations with people you admire and love. I decided to print out an exact copy of a Polaroid, and I wanted the individual on the Polaroid displayed on real ‘head size’. Since I see this exhibition as an introduction of me and my blog I decided to choose 2 of my favorite images combined in 1 story: At The End Of It All, It Was Q featuring Q-Tip aka Kamaal The Abstract and Marie Daulne, Congo-Belgian queen from Zap Mama. It’s one of my favorite stories and meeting them both at the same time made such a beautiful impact on me so that’s why I decided that they should be on my very first large print-outs.
I was very curious to see the prints, since I had to ship them immediately to London after they got printed because I left for Miami the next day. I was hoping they turned out beautifully and not horrendously. I really wanted to incorporate a real Polaroid ‘feel’ to it, so I made sure the prints consisted of two different textures, just like a real Polaroid.
So on a grey, rainy, lazy sunday, Jules and I hopped in the car, left Belgium behind and took a 4 hour road trip to Frankfurt. What else are you supposed to do on a grey sunday? Hang on the couch? When we finally arrived and I saw my little babies all GROWN up standing relaxed next to one another in this beautiful bright expo space JEE so nicely put together, I was happy with my decision to participate.
Enjoy the following impressions of ANITTUDE THE EXHIBITION.
Dotting the i. It’s all in the small details, right?

This, my loyal readers, is a little taste, a small experiment, a modest try-out of what I plan to do in one year, maximum 2. If you think these pictures are pretty big, well, sorry son, you aint seen nothing yet. (big grin) Imagine a big exposition, with MASSIVE polaroids, launched on a beautiful summer night in Ostend (where else) and travelling to 4 cities in the world with a huge launch party and special guests.
Impossible you say? Really? A girl can dream right?
Try and visit this beautiful, honest little expo if it hits your (euro) city in the next few months and support Anattitude Magazine!
