Despite having rarely used a camera during his career, Robert Heinecken (1931–2006) is widely considered one of the most influential post-war American photographers. The exhibition at WIELS examines a pivotal period in the artist's career, during which Heinecken used a Polaroid SX70 camera. The presentation includes the first examples of works using this technology, starting in the mid-1970s until his most iconic project, the series "Lessons in Posing Subjects," dating from 1981–82, and presented here in its entirety.
