Polaroid Library

In February 2008, Polaroid announced it would discontinue production of film, sending waves of dismay throughout the photo community and beyond. Beloved of amateurs and professionals since its invention in the early 1960s, the Polaroid exemplified photographic spontaneity; it was also the most material of photographic practices, delivering a physical document within seconds. Long considered an ideal camera for the informal family snap, in the 1990s and early 2000s the Polaroid look determined the street photography of an entire generation of young artists, who turned its immediacy to document their lives. In October of 2009, Polaroid announced that it was bringing back its instant cameras, and young American photographers continue to expand its intimate idiom and character.
