Ciao Polaroid/Adiós Polaroid
In 1944 Polaroid was created by Edwin Land due to her daughter´s caprice. Numeours Artists like ANdy Warhol used it to create his first master pieces.Unfortunately, the Polaroid camera has become obsolete and the last films of polaroid will be distributed this year.
I remember when I was a kid and I always wanted to have a polaroid due to the quickness of getting the printed photo which you had to put inside a book not to spoil it (i usually couldn´t wait and open the book!).
Nowadays, this is no wish for a kid where they have everything digitilized.
I wanted to pay my special tribute to Polaroid with this self-portrait of Andy Warhol
