Published in companion to Polaroids 92-95 (NY). 

“As time has passed there are many names that I remember but some unfortunately I can no longer recall. These images are a result of a collaboration and understanding between the subjects and the observer. I want to thank everyone that appears in them.” Ari Marcopoulos
