PHOENIX -- Steve Weiss is counting on nostalgia to attract people to his latest exhibit, "Little Pictures."

It features 16 original pictures Weiss took using the Polaroid Spectra, a camera for which Polaroid no longer produces film.

"Everybody's used to the square format, but this was a more rectangular image which allowed me to do verticals and horizontals," Weiss said.

The simplicity and speed attracted Weiss to the Spectra, after previously spending years processing black and white and color photography.

"This was like a mental break and a physical break from carrying lots of equipment around and buying lots of film," Weiss said.

In addition to the exhibit, Weiss has published a book featuring nearly 40 Polaroid pictures which he will sign when the show opens Friday, June 7 at Coe House Gallery, 365 North 4th Avenue in Phoenix.

It runs through June 30. For more information call 602-405-4684.
