In an Instant: Polaroid at the Intersection of Art and Technology

 

 

While we have gotten so used to the fact that we can simply snap a photo as and when we want, we often forget about how advanced the technology needs to be for that to happen. In today’s time, the idea of immortalising our memories in an instant have never been easier but what actually brought about such technological marvel? Such ease that we have now can actually be attributed to the first Polaroid camera, allowing people to be able to capture photographs in an instant, leading to the birth of instant photography. In this exhibition, you will essentially find out more about the predecessor of Instagram and gain an insight into the art of Polaroid photography. Definitely recommended for photography enthusiasts!
