Time image of America

The Polaroids collection shows the American culture that Lixenberg came into contact with in the 1990s and 2000s. The passage of time can be experienced because our view of some public figures is inextricably colored by the knowledge about the rest of their lives. For example, in 1998, Lixenberg photographed Whitney Houston, who died in 2012, for her record label and in 1998, a young Donald Trump for New York Magazine.

With hundreds of photos, the Polaroid 54/59/79 exhibition offers visitors a snapshot of America in the years 1993-2010, an ode to the Polaroid and a special insight into the working process of one of the Netherlands' most renowned photographers.
