The Gallery: Paul Scheik

Polaroid Panorama

Master of the Polaroid panorama, darling of the night, and toast of the weblogs…we bring you Paul Scheik, a wandering minstrel of a photographer who makes his subject the people and things he encounters on his constant travels throughout the US.

We first saw his work on the Polaroid Photography Collective, an addictive site where the triptych below can be found (and a print purchased for $7 -- what a deal!).

Some trolling on Google revealed a few more Polaroid panoramas posted on other blogs. I love these. I have no idea how to track them down.

And it seems he may be a Polaroid-by-day/Single-Reflex-by-Night artist as he recently had a show of nighttime photographs (see below) at the Stephen Wirtz Gallery in San Francisco.

These photographs are all untitled digital chromogenic prints, 20 x 24 inches, printed in editions of 10.

Curious for still more? Check out this sweet little link to his book of photographs of skateboarders – you can flip through them…very cool.

Thanks Paul. Keep up the good work.

And thanks to swissmiss for giving us our first peak.
