SNOW, Dash. Polaroids.

(Berlin, Los Angeles): Peres Projects, [2008]. First edition.  Large square quarto.  Unpaginated.  Starting from his teenage years, Snow was rarely without his Polaroid camera, and with it he chronicled all the messiness, excess, and hedonism of being young, reckless, and uninhibited.  Snow was active during a distinct chapter in American history, the early aughts, as an artist in New York at the epicenter of a whole country’s anxiety. Snow spoke for himself and on his own terms, but he also spoke of and to a generation emerging out of a post-9/11 reality. His work articulates his reaction to this politically charged and socially paranoid time, recording his own unadulterated vision of his chosen existence. He let loose a multitude of images during his short life, all honestly reflective of his microcosm as he captured who and what surrounded him, especially his close friends who became his family, while also creating imagery that was broad and pointed, satirizing the rhetoric of authority and the absurdity of tabloid media. A very good copy in printed wrappers.   An outstanding work.
