RIP Polaroid (1948-2009)

September 29, 2009

In February 2008 they announced the production of Polaroid films will cease. The last produced films from Polaroid will expire come 09-10-09. And to commemorate, an exhibition named ‘Polaroid: Exp 09.10.09’ has been setup at the Atlas Gallery in London showcasing some of the best works of Polaroid photography.

I hate to see it go, especially since i still didnt get to own one myself! But apparently it isnt over yet, because a group of camera geeks online have setup a website called the-impossible-project.com for those of us that love the camera so much and they plan to reopen one of the Polaroid factories they have leased in Holland to produce a million Polaroids in 2010.
