Pola­roid foun­der Edwin Land regar­ded his inven­ti­on as more than a tech­ni­cal accom­plish­ment or a con­ve­ni­ent medi­um for both pro­fes­sio­nal pho­to­graph­ers and con­su­mers — he saw Pola­roid as a means of artis­tic expres­si­on. At Land’s behest, and star­ting from a col­la­bo­ra­ti­on with Ansel Adams in 1949, Pola­roid built an artists’ liai­son pro­gram­me in which artists and pho­to­graph­ers would dona­te prints in return for mate­ri­als and access to cut­ting-edge Pola­roid tech­no­lo­gy — inclu­ding the legen­da­ry 24 x 20 inch Pola­roid came­ra. Over the next five deca­des, the Pola­roid collec­tions in both the United Sta­tes and Euro­pe beca­me world-renow­ned for the stel­lar list of names who­se work it con­tai­ned. Fol­lowing Polaroid’s second bankrupt­cy in 2008, the collec­tions were frag­men­ted — the US and Euro­pean collec­tions were split and key works were sold at auc­tion. A com­pre­hen­si­ve view of the collec­tion was no lon­ger pos­si­ble — until now.

With an asso­cia­ted, inter­na­tio­nal­ly tou­ring exhi­bi­ti­on ope­ning in June 2017, The Pola­roid Pro­ject is the only book to bring tog­e­ther both the out­stan­ding pho­to­gra­phy crea­ted by the artists and pho­to­graph­ers Pola­roid worked with, along­side the tech­ni­cal objects and arti­facts from the MIT Muse­um archi­ve. Cura­ted by Wil­liam A. Ewing and Bar­ba­ra Hitch­cock, and with texts from other lea­ding cri­tics, cura­tors and wri­ters that dis­cuss the Pola­roid phe­no­me­non in terms of artis­tic out­put and las­ting lega­cy on design, tech­no­lo­gy, socie­ty and busi­ness, this book is the defi­ni­ti­ve publi­ca­ti­on for the many who have a deep love of Polaroid.

The defi­ni­ti­ve illus­tra­ted publi­ca­ti­on on the art and sci­ence of Pola­roid

es ist zur Zeit — Stand März 2020 — auch noch eine dt. Aus­ga­be des Ban­des erhältlich
