Hello! This site is (as you have no doubt figured out) a companion to INSTANT: A CULTURAL HISTORY OF POLAROID, which will be published by Princeton Architectural Press in the fall of 2012. I’m hoping the site will go beyond simply publicizing the book, becoming a gathering place for information about Polaroid photography past, present, and future. Please check back in regularly; I’m hoping to post once a day, indefinitely. And please feel free to:
• submit stories about Polaroid, Dr. Edwin Land, or anything related to instant photography
•submit scans of Polaroid photographs you’d like me to post (genuine film photos only, please no Poladroid fakes)
•comment on, praise, argue, or otherwise engage with whatever I say (just keep it civil, folks).
LEGALITIESThis site is not connected with or endorsed by Polaroid or PLR IP Holdings, owners of the Polaroid trademark.
