The Luis Mora 'Polaroids Never Die' editorial for Contra magazine is an eccentric peek at goth lovers.

Luis Mora masterfully captures an "I don't give a f**k" attitude in her Polaroid works. The composition of the photographs is seemingly spontaneous and rich with attitude and character. The series allows viewers to engage with the scene, feeling wild and willing to cause a ruckus. Each photo is playfully dark and powerfully sensual. Mora takes the Polaroid medium and uses it in a unique style.

Contra magazine is a Toronto-based publication featuring up and coming people, ideas and cultural information. The structure of the magazine gives it an especially endearing free-spirit. It is very relaxed in its presentation and is not intimidated by more Photoshopped aesthetics.
