Found Polaroids runs workshops! The last two workshops in Toronto allowed participants the opportunity to interact with some of the original collection. In the workshops participants were asked to write brief 30-50 word stories about a Polaroid of their choice and then share it with the group. Some of the Polaroids we introduced at the workshops are in the online collection, and others are from batches that haven’t yet been shared or written about.

We chose to produce newsprint-style publications that featured the short stories written at the workshops. In the spirit of the print photography, we felt it was important for participants to walk away with something physical. You can find PDF versions of both publications here:


A workshop as part of the Cross Sections – Intersections Conference (2016). The publication was funded by the Conference.


A workshop as part of the Nuvango Gallery Exhibition INSTANT (2016). The publication was funded by Nuvango and The Found Polaroids Project.
