Vienna’s Westlicht Museum of Photography has recently announced a new exhibition focused on images taken with the now-vintage Polaroid instant camera. Over 350 photographs are on display in the museum, ranging from a self-portrait by Andy Warhol to Patrick Nagatani’s meta-referential Polaroid pieces and David Levinthal’s “Vietnam” and “Space” series’. As part of the brand’s original promotion in the 1960s, Polaroid’s founder, inventor Edwin Herbert Land, provided artists and photographers with free cameras and film with which they could experiment – resulting in a collection encompassing 4,400 pieces by 800 artists around the world. Westlicht has acquired much of the surviving work and incorporated it into this museum piece. For those in Vienna, the Polaroid [im]possible exhibition is definitely worth checking out.
