Exploring Photography… Polaroid

Polaroid photography is named after the company which brought an instant film land camera to market in the 1940s. These very popular cameras produced photos with black and white, or a dreamy and slightly off-kilter color. Polaroid quit making the film for their cameras in 2008, but the Impossible Project has since taken up making film for the classic Polaroid. Recently Polaroid has released a new reconfigured Polaroid camera.

With or without an instant camera, photographers have embraced the look of the vintage and kitchy Polaroid film. Below are some wonderful photographs using a Polaroid or a technique that produces similar results.

Fine art photographs should be preserved by mounting on acid-free backing, and framed behind UV glass. Photographs should be kept out of direct sunlight to prevent damage to the image.

As with all of my featured art/artists these are pieces I would purchase for myself or as a gift.
