BRIAN BRUNO CHOCOLATE POLAROID BOOK RELEASE

Brian Bruno Chocolate Polaroid Book Release

April 14th, 530pm-9pm

ART + WHISKEY + COMMUNITY

With instant pack film being discontinued, this is an effort to preserve one of the rarest pack films ever produced in book form.
The film is known as Polaroid Chocolate film which hasn’t been produced since 2008.  As a matter of fact, it was one of the last films that Polaroid manufactured in very limited quantities. It has been a labor of love to search and obtain this film for this project.
The subject matter is art nude found in natural surroundings. The goal was to include an all encompassing array of subjects.
Slow & Low Whiskey
Will Be Pouring From 530-730
