Polaroid was founded by Edwin Land in 1937 as an icon of innovation and engineering. It was the introduction of the breakthrough Polaroid SX-70 camera in 1972 that launched instant photography as we know it today, followed by landmark innovations such as the original OneStep, instant color film; and the Polaroid 600 and Spectra cameras and film formats.
Polaroid cameras went on to inspire artists such as Andy Warhol, Helmut Newton, Robert Mapplethorpe, Maripol, Keith Haring, and Guy Bourdin who raised the brand to the status of a cultural icon.
Today, Polaroid has analog instant photography at its core and represents the brand that people all over the world came to know and love for over 80 years.
