Instants: Linda Lindroth's Polaroid Portraits

Explore the stories in the exhibit Instants: Linda Lindroth's Polaroid Portraits with the artist and Museum staff. In the 1980s and 1990s, as a participant in the Polaroid Artists Support Program, Linda Lindroth had the opportunity to photograph a number of New Haveners with the Polaroid 20 x 24 camera, a highly specialized camera. Hailing from the worlds of visual art, education, architecture, and theatrical performance, the portraits’ subjects represent some of the defining characteristics of the Elm City. The Museum has paired each portrait with an analogous work in its online collections catalog, which visitors can access by QR code.
