    Downtown Phoenix Journal Highlights Steve Hanson Polaroid Exhibit

    My Polaroid exhibit titled “People, Places + Pop” has been highlighted as exhibits to see for third Friday in September. The exhibit is a celebration of real photographs. In the new era of digital photos, it has been estimated that more photographs are taken each year than the entire history of analogue photography. Tangible photos that you can have and hold have become uncommon. The exhibit presents Polaroids in contemporary surroundings. People who are social influencers, Places that have become areas of solace, and Pop the branded, commercial landscape we live in day after day.

    Mushroom Market Expands

    The market for medicinal mushrooms in health ingredients continues to grow. Mushrooms have largely been positioned for condition-specific products for immune function and cancer support. Although nutrition industry influencers and natural product practitioners know the health benefits of mushrooms, these benefits have not been realized by mainstream consumers.

    Instead, U.S. consumers associate mushrooms as something to use on pizza or as hallucinogenic drug.

    In an article written for NutraIngredientsUSA.com, I write about the growth of the mushroom category and its impact on leading U.S. producer Aloha Medicinals.

    “People, Places + Pop” Featured as Top Art Shows to See in Phoenix

    My Polaroid art show has been featured in the Phoenix New Times as a top art show to see in Phoenix for First Friday in September.

    The exhibit will feature Polaroids from my “Polaroid of the Day” series on Facebook along with new and experimental images.  In 2010 as a response to the growing phenomenon of sharing on social media, I originated the ongoing “Polaroid of the Day” series on Facebook. The Polaroids taken for the series exist both in a physical and digital form. A physical Polaroid that is scanned and then shared digitally via social media. The intention of the process to emphasize that our physical connections are only enhanced by connecting digitally.
