During his decade as a Steidl employee, graphic designer and image editor Jonas Wettre made portraits of the countless artists visiting the publishing house in Göttingen. Alternatively using a Polaroid SX-70 Land camera with its classic square format and an EE100 sheet film camera, he recorded many of the seemingly random yet unique moments that take place at Steidl every day. Wettre’s Once There Were Polaroids is both an unconventional portrait of bookmaking at “Steidlville” and a candid portrait of his subjects.
