In the creative aspect of his work, Dan Isaac Wallin has a love of Polaroid. He prefers to work with a simple SX-70 or Polaroid 180, using long expired Polaroid film. Wallin gently and carefully treats and mistreats the Polaroid film while it is developing, until he gets the soft ‘other-world’ look, that is the signature style of his work.
This series will show mainly outdoor motifs from the Swedish countryside. The colours and expressions change with the seasons, and behind these beautiful images there rests a serious, calm and poetic sensitivity.
Wallin presents journeys from the places of childhood. His memories become dreamlike sequences; from the blue of Bohuslän to the black and white of Israel. Mystery cuts through the nostalgic imagery and awakens questions within the viewer.

The city of Toronto. I feel favoured to walk these streets. The people, the architecture, the smell, the taste; the life.
I was in Toronto first time in 2007. First days, I remember wanting to go home so bad. It was late October and was raining sideways. But then after a few days, I never wanted to leave.
I was traveling together with a very dedicated Creative Director, on commission for the Swedish Absolut Vodka Company. It was full schedule. The only day off, I went to the Andy Warhol Art Show; Stars, Deaths, and Disasters. Curator; David Cronenberg (film director). I remember standing there, at the Art Gallery of Ontario (this is Frank Gehry building today) listening to Dennis Hopper’s thoughts about Andy Warhol’s relation to Jackie Kennedy – That, he actually wanted to be her.
I got inspired by all this creativity and wanted to depict the city. But I did not have the time, I had to catch a flight the next day. Nevertheless, two years later I had the opportunity to go back to see a friend. /…/
Finally, this is TORONTO.
