50 Unpublished Polaroid Portraits of Hollywood Stars in the 1980s

Michael Dare was a film critic for the L.A. Weekly in the 1980s. While trashing their films in print, he met most of Hollywood stars, and considered to photograph and distort it all.

In a storage locker in Desert Hot Springs there are thousands of ridiculous SX-70 Polaroid portraits of the famous, the insane, and the dead. They've never been published and rarely been seen by anyone except the subjects themselves - who usually expressed either glee or abject horror.

"Due to copyright law, or maybe just good old fashioned good taste, I've had an incredibly hard time getting my work shown in public." - he says.
