Photo Finish: Polly Chandler Illuminating Subjects
by David J. Carol
April 01, 2012 —
There’s a fine line between seeing “technique” in a photo, and making a photo that can surpass the tools of the trade to become an honest and powerful image. Polly Chandler possesses the ability to create photographic metaphors that are not only beautiful, but thought-provoking. If dreams could be photographed, she would be behind the camera shooting them—making movie stills of the mind brought to you via Polaroid type 55 film.
David J. Carol is the director of photography at CBS Outdoor. His photographs and award-winning photography books are in the collections of major museums and institutions throughout the United States.
