DESCRIPTION

In F***ed Up In Minneapolis, the New York-based photographer Robert Whitman has fashioned both a tribute to his formative years as an artist and a group self-portrait defining the 80's through the individuals who were the willing participants of the scene. Arranged throughout the gallery space, these Polaroids possess an uncanny power and comprise, over time, a phantom-like collection of people dreaming of and playing in other realities, even as, together, they offer a memorial to collective experience.

Robert Whitman did not begin his career in photography until he was in his mid-twenties, and has worked for numerous magazines, including Travel & leisure, Allure, and Glamour. Throughout his career he has been documenting the experience of a place or a perception in time.
