BRIEF HISTORY

Remember when you were young and you didn’t have a cell phone that took photos? Obviously, I’m speaking to those of a certain age, most likely born in the 1980s or earlier. It was a time when you had to wait to get film processed. It could take a week or longer and when you got it back you had no idea if they were all going to be even worth the wait. Sometimes they were blurry or the flash was too bright or someone sneezed; the list goes on and on of all the “throw-away” photos you used to waste money on and necessary means of the process.

However, there was the exception of the Polaroid. Polaroids were an instant fix for your photograph processing needs. You snapped the photo, out popped your photo, then you set it face side down (or if you were a rebel you shook it, though I don’t recommend that method), waited 5 minutes for it to develop and PRESTO!

The great thing about Polaroids were their portability, instant gratification, fun for parties, various formats, fun filters, and “artsy” quality. Though, again, I don’t like that term much, but I’ll go with it. In 2001, Polaroid declared bankruptcy and then again in 2008 filled Chapter 11 bankruptcy, shutting down its three factories. In the following years, a Dutch company revived the beloved film under The Impossible Project later to acquire Polaroid’s brand and intellectual property and become Polaroid Originals.
