Ryan Rudewicz
Photographer
I have been taking polaroids for over 5 years now. Something about capturing a moment on polaroid and being able to hold it in your hand is really special to me. It's true instant photography that takes a "slice of life." When Covid hit, I was furloughed from my job in theater and I turned to my polaroids as a creative outlet. I then became more and more obsessed with taking polaroids that I brought my camera everywhere I went. I really love capturing Queer Nightlife on polaroid and being able to share it with more people every day.
