The Polaroid camera has been an integral part of photographic history since the early 1970s: the self-developing images, the classic square format with the white edge and the light composition of the photos are the personification of the snapshot.

The Polaroid photo in art

In recent decades they have also enjoyed great popularity among artists. Andy Warhol used the Polaroids as a reference for his pop art and documented his work with it, Dennis Hopper researched with the camera for his films, and Richard Hamilton painterly redesigned the snapshots. In a collection of 250 photographs, the exhibition portrays the many possible uses of the Polaroid camera.
