AN IMPOSSIBLE PROJECT
Lovers of analogue, rejoice! This is the ultimate digital versus analogue documentary.
After acknowledging the dominance of digital, Polaroid announced it would shut down its last factory in 2008. Austrian scientist Dr Florian Kaps becomes a man with a mission: he sets out to save the last Polaroid factory in the world.
Simon Devitt is a photographer with a strong practice focus in Architecture, currently based in Auckland, New Zealand, with an established international practice throughout Australasia and further afield. Photo-books bring together Simon's passion for image, place and language, which started in 2013 with the launch of Portrait of a House, his first self-published photo-book on the Athfield residence in Wellington. Since then, he has started publishing the Ripe Fruit series, and has also authored the award-winning photo-book Rannoch and the All Things Considered series.
His images feature in many books and collaborations including Long Live the Modern (2009), Group Architects: Towards a New Zealand Architecture (2010), Athfield Architects (2012) and Summer Houses (2011); as well as in numerous national and international magazines such as Elle Decor (Italy, UK, Japan and South Africa), Architectural Digest (Germany), Dwell (USA), Habitus, InDesign (Australia), Architecture NZ, Home New Zealand, Urbis, Interior (NZ).
Simon lectures in Photography of Architecture at the University of Auckland, which has also offered an annual Simon Devitt Prize for Photography since 2008.
