Innovation Imagination: 50 Years of Polaroid Photography
Innovation Imagination: 50 Years of Polaroid Photography by Barbara Hitchcock
When Edwin Land invented instant photography more than 50 years ago, he offered this thought on his scientific breakthrough: "The purpose of inventing instant photography was essentially aesthetic--to make available a new medium of expression to numerous individuals who have artistic interest in the world around them." Having hired Ansel Adams in 1948 to test the limits of this new medium, Land was clearly committed to his science as a tool of the visual arts. This volume gives us a selective look at the Polaroid Collection, established in the 1960s to honor the works of artists using instant photography."
