Behind the Polaroid

A (relatively) new book by Christopher Bonanos explores the life and inventions of Polaroid founder Edwin Land.

On the companion site to the book, Bonanos, an editor at New York Magazine, writes:

Instant: The Story of Polaroid is a book about a very unusual company. In the 1960s and 1970s, Polaroid was what Apple is today: the coolest technology company on earth, the one with irresistible products, the one whose stock kept climbing way past the point of logic. In its heyday, Polaroid was an absolute innovation machine—a scientific think tank that periodically kicked out a fantastically profitable, covetable product. In fact, the late Steve Jobs expressly said that he modeled his company to a great extent after Polaroid.

Instant film should be treasured by everyone!

International Bucket-Lists Captured in Polaroids
“What do you want to do before you die?” It sounds like the  beginning of a very long late-night conversation with friends. In this  case, the question is the catalyst for a photo project by Nicole Kenney.  Kenney has traveled all over the world, from Kansas to Kerala, India,  with a Polaroid camera and sharpie, capturing the faces and pre-death  aspirations of thousands of people. Kenney also took the project to a  hospice care-center for those who are terminally ill.
In a number of years, Kenney said she will check in with the subjects  of the photographs to see how close they are to achieving their wishes.  She said she hopes that the photos will serve as a tangible promise to  themselves to go forward and make their life-goals a reality.

This is such a great project. I want to own a business and then move to Tulum for at least a few years. Yes.

We’re back in Mexico City for the first time since July and we’re here for our wedding. The decision to wed here wasn’t a difficult one to reach. Some of our best friends are here. The weather is spectacular this time of year. The food is the best in the world. The sites are just as profound. A piece of our hearts stayed in DF when we left for Los Angeles, so, really, it only made sense. 

12 of our closest friends from the US arrived here with us last night…a good FIVE days before the wedding. This would be our definition of “blessed.”
