Dana Lixenberg has been documenting cultural icons and marginalized communities for over 30 years. Always approaching each subject with the human element in mind, the Dutch photographer distills celebrity and magnanimous events into qualities that we all can relate to.
Between 1993 and 2010, Lixenberg used the versatile medium of Polaroid photography as a way to test out lighting and composition. Roma Publications has released a new art book documenting this unique approach, providing an intimate glimpse into Lixenberg’s iconic career, which includes numerous editorial shoots for clients such as Vibe, The New York Times Magazine, The New Yorker, Rolling Stone and more.
Dubbed Polaroid 54 / 59 / 79, the book is both an ode to the utilitarian function of Polaroid images, along with reflecting the American culture that Lixerberg encountered during her career.
