We’ve come full rectangle: Polaroid is reborn out of The Impossible Project

More than a decade after announcing that it would keep Polaroid’s abandoned instant film alive, The Impossible Project has done the… improbable: It has officially become the brand it set out to save. And to commemorate the occasion there’s a new camera, the Polaroid Now. The convergence of the two brands has been in the works for years, and in fact Impossible Project products were already Polaroid-branded. But this marks a final and satisfying shift in one of the stranger relationships in startu...

While nostalgia marketing isn’t new, it is particularly relevant today at a time when people feel increasingly lonely on one hand and distrust brands and corporations on the other. Although nostalgia is not for every brand. In some cases, nostalgia can marginalize your brand by emphasizing that it is out of touch and is no longer relevant to consumers.

From Facebook to Tesla, here are the lesser-known cofounders of some of the biggest tech companies in the world

Most of the world's most famous tech entrepreneurs had help building their companies. And while Mark Zuckerberg's and Steve Job's cofounders didn't all become household names, they're still credited with bringing Facebook and Apple to life.

View Cameras

I've been at least low-level obsessed with view cameras since I started in photography seriously in 1980. I used to go by Ferrante-Dege, an old-line camera store in Cambridge, Massachusetts (I loved and miss old camera stores), to "visit" a resplendent Deardorff 5x7 they had on semi-permanent display (it was for sale, but didn't sell, so it was there for a long time). It was profoundly beautiful—well, to my photogeeky young self it was—and also profoundly unaffordable, which made me covet it all...

Capturing and Creating Photo Memories

This post was created in partnership with Best Buy.  All opinions are my own, as always.   You know how some people love books because they love to feel the page in their hand as they read? Well, that’s how I feel about photos.   There’s something about having a printed photo in my hand, something tangible that I can look at, hold, and reflect on that makes me feel happy.  In 1993, I achieved this with a good ol’ Polaroid Camera. Today, I’m doing creating photo memories with the Polaroid Origina...

Indeed, there was much jousting. As the title says, this is about me. Not jus...
