Andy Warhol :more History and influence Polaroid Instamatic Cameraa

Originally uploaded by ● Frio
Andy Warhol with the famous Polaroid Instamatic camera. He was famous for those 80s celebrity silkscreens. It is how he made such big bucks in the 1980s. The silkscreen would originate with one of these instantly developed photos from this camera. Everyone had one. Even our family did. I guess not everyone, but so many did as I think they were affordably priced. Anyway, they are making a" comeback." Saw a CBS piece on the comeback and I intend to do a follow up. and report back to you dear audience. The European company where Polaroid was based says they are making more of them and they are a big hit in that country. It is Austria or Germany I believe.
