One machine is always coupled with another.
In his second book of Polaroids, Scorpio, Mike Slack charts a familiar but undetermined terrain through fragments of architecture, geology and space. Designed as a companion to Ok Ok Ok (2002), this collection begins with what appears to be a fallen asteroid and ends with what might be a stray, mythical dog—evokative bookends to a kind of travel narrative (or psychic puzzle) in which Slack's mastery of the Polaroid medium infuses commonplace observations with hints of a lingering, otherworldly past.
Mike Slack lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. His photographs have appeared in Harper's, GOOD, the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, and Newsweek.
