Snapshot decisions: Philip-Lorca diCorcia’s Polaroids | Art and design | guardian.co.uk

I have always considered Philip-Lorca diCorcia one of the great postmodernists of contemporary photography. Having received an MA in Fine Arts Photography at Yale in 1979, his reputation rests to a great degree on his moody and meticulous restaging of scenes from everyday life. Initially, he photographed close friends and family members in low-key, intimate situations that often look both real and strangely heightened, like stills from one of Gus Van Sant’s dreamier films.
