Jonathon Stout a.k.a. BadJon is constantly capturing images of the Lowcountry, and he's perhaps best known for his signature style of polaroid portraits, freezing a moment in time in black and white. In his new show, Meet the Makers: A B&W Polaroid Portrait Exhibit, Stout presents over 50 portraits of locals, people who are part of "the essence of Charleston." The show opens on Fri. Sept. 7 at Revealed Gallery, with a reception held from 5-8 p.m.

Shooting from expired (2014) Fujifilm FP-3000B Polaroid film, a tripod, and his manual Polaroid 600SE camera, Stout has combined his expertise in both polaroids and portraits to present 50+ images of Charlestonians "behind-the-scenes." Stout hopes that his use of unorthodox equipment will encourage viewers to "slow down and actually think about what we are looking at."
