In these works, Burton found another medium for expressing visual themes and motifs that also appear in his sketchbooks, drawings, paintings and films.

Created in studios and on desert and countryside locations with the aid of live models, many of the Polaroids employ fantastic objects and puppets and props from Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993), while exploring Burton’s fascination with holidays, body modification, and the Gothic.

Tim Burton Polaroids will show in ACMIs Gallery 2 for a strictly limited season until Sunday 26 September, closing two weeks earlier than the major show, Tim Burton: The Exhibition, on display in Gallery 1 until Sunday 10 October, 2010. Tim Burton Polaroids is free admission.
