SX-70 Polaroid photographs made in the 1970s and ’80s in New York City, Santa Barbara and Philadelphia – before, during, and after the artist briefly studied film at NYU in NYC. Vintage SX-70 Polaroids and custom prints from originals. All prints are signed and dated. No filters, or other manipulations were used in the creation of these Polaroid photographs.

In the age of of the $1K iPhone, virtually anyone can snap a well-composed photograph to share with the social media world. UNFILTERED is an exhibition of vintage SX70 Polaroid photography art created by Jenny Lynn in the 1970s and 1980s. These photographs do not rely on fancy image stabilization technology, user-friendly photo editing software, or Instagram filters. The artist’s composition and use of light combined with her surrealist aesthetic makes this exhibition a must-see. Amateur and professional photography enthusiasts alike will ask themselves “how did she do that?” using instant Polaroid film.
