FOURLINES – polaroid project
(2010) Four young Italian photographers, all polaroid lovers, that always work individually.

Four young Italian photographers, Gabriele Chiapparini, Andrea Colombo, Anna Morosini and Elena Vaninetti, come from different parts of Italy and also different territorial realities, all polaroid lovers, that always work individually. The group was formed with a common purpose, which needs the particular and specific contribution of everyone of them, as technically able photographers, also having a strong and recognizable personal style.
The project we made is based on a photography “on the road” trip (“trip” mean as “dimension”), with the exclusive using of the instant photography language (polaroid); we had Scandinavia for destination, that re- presented a completely different reality from our usual landscapes: white, pure, geometric, clean. The idea was to tell through images the sharing of a unique space-time, from 4 different points of view, marked and different between them, having common travels, but also individual for colours, feelings and point of view.

The trip

Scandinavia is the travel playground, that its’ also a dream, 24 day and 9000 km long. The 4 artists, crossed Denmark, moved to Norway, touched Lappony and then Sweden, using 200 polaroid films during the travel, for more then 1800 unique shots. Many stops during the travel had been chosen on the possibility to meet and collaborate with local photo- graphers, selected by the web. They took from them a “from the inside” vision of these unusual (for us) pla- ces, living with theme for a few days.
