Detroit Polaroids get super sized for 'Larger Than Life' at Tangent Gallery

Staff Pick


  • Eric Hergenreder

Sponsored by Woodward Camera, 'Larger Than Life' will showcase more than 75 Polaroid and Instax photographs from artists who have captured the essence of Detroit using an instant format. Each image featured has been scanned and re-printed to be larger than the original print, and each print will be available to purchase for $20. Donations will be accepted to benefit the Detroit Impact Center, which assists at-risk youth at developing values, motivation, and positive self-esteem —  specifically those located on the city's west side. Music by Isaac Prieto of Detroit Vinyl Room.

Larger Than Life opens at 7 p.m. on Thursday, March 14 at Tangent Gallery; 715 E. Milwaukee St., Detroit; 313-873-2955;; Event is free.
