Included here are more than 80 colorplates of Polaroids by such diverse artists as Ansel Adams, Robert Frank, Nancy Burson, Robert Mapplethorpe, Chuck Close, Lucas Samaras, and William Wegman. Their photographs display the artistic inventiveness and technical achievement made possible by Polaroid film and present an overview of the past 50 years in photography. The photographs are accompanied by an essay placing Polaroid in historical context, and comments by the photographers themselves offer insights into how Polaroid has affected their art.
