Traveling with a Polaroid camera

Kitty Crowther lecture + exhibition, Uppsala, Sweden, 2019, www.Fenne.be

Kitty Crowther, Uppsala

With sleepy eyes, I checked my phone that morning. Just before getting out of bed and getting started with the day. We already had plans, but suddenly I saw an Instagram post by Kitty Crowther, mentioning not only the exhibition in Uppsala but also a...
