Polaroid Hotel Pays Tribute to Art of Polaroids

Recently, OhWow gallery and Lead Apron bookstore in Los Angeles hosted shows featuring the unfiltered work of Patrick Hoelck. (You may remember him as the photographer who took some dark celebrity portraits of Samuel L. Jackson, Christina Ricci and Katie Holmes.) The photos can be found in his newest book Polaroid Hotel where Hoelck pays tribute to the art of Polaroid photography by capturing intimate moments of his life and career throughout his 17 years.

Though Hoelck's images may seem random, they actually provide an interesting look at contemporary urban life.

These shots make you think that no matter the medium, the talent lies in the person taking the shot…
