Andrei Tarkovsky’s Stunning Polaroid Photography

Andrei Tarkovsky is considered by many to be the most influential Soviet filmmaker of the post-war era. As Ingmar Bergman once said, “Tarkovsky for me is the greatest [director], the one who invented a new language, true to the nature of film, as it captures life as a reflection, life as a dream.” In films such as Solaris, The Mirror, Nostalghia, and The Sacrifice, his poetic, wide-angle shots often resemble still photographs. This aesthetic translates in a series of Polaroids taken by the director in Russia and Italy between 1979 and 1984.
