The retro style of Polaroid pictures has been making a comeback. One local photographer has displayed his instant images from nearly 40 years of shooting.

Polaroid images with blurry subjects and muted colors hang behind white mattes at the Mathews Opera House. The small tables underneath scattered with vinyl records, unframed Polaroids and a lava lamp make this exhibit feel vintage.

Roger O’Dea is the photographer. His show, Zero Megapixels, is a collection of portrait, still and landscape images from years of shooting at home and around the country.
