Polaroid Instant CameraTech_PolaroidCamera_Wht_11x14 $44
Our 'Polaroid Instant Camera' print takes you back to the time when American scientist, Edward Land's 1948 invention hit its peak in popularity. During the 1970s, the Land Camera was a hit because it offered instant fun. It wasn't about image quality—it was about capturing the quality of the moment. As cameras and film quality improved, people tired of the poor image quality. By the 1990s, Polaroid filed for bankruptcy. Ironically, with the advent of social media and instant image sharing, they've made a comeback as party favourites and once again you'll find spinoffs of the Polaroid popping up.
The inspiration behind our Polaroid Instant Camera Art Print
This print is a nod to the golden era of the instant camera. It's kind of ironic that the low-quality Polaroids Land cameras of the 1970s were largely responsible for piquing my interest in photography. It was cool to see my shots develop before my eyes. But I soon tired of the dingy and muddy prints and moved on to SLR cameras and 35mm film. But the good ole Land always has a special spot in my heart.
If you're a photography buff or collector or eclectic art, this print makes a great addition to your collection or home decor.
