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...

6 Ways To Use Nostalgia In Marketing

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. Radio Shack initially scored big with its 2014 Super Bowl ad, featuring icons from the 1980s such as wrestler Hulk Hogan, the iconic DeLorean ...

On This Day 1916: Ishi Died

In europe we have Otzi the iceman, we have a few artifacts, some of his EDC if you will, but the languages we speak were not due to be heard for thousands of years after his death. He's a Polaroid, a snap shot, just one frame (in not too sharp a focus) of a world we can only imagine and even then imagine only through the distorting lens of a viewpoint far far removed from anything Otzi would have known. His world was long gone before ours was born or thought of. We'll never know the date of his...

The $10 billion biotech Moderna developed a potential coronavirus vaccine in record time, zooming past Big Pharma competitors. The company's CEO Stephane Bancel sat down with Business Insider to discuss the technology platform that drove its speed, and how the company hopes to pioneer a new way of developing vaccines.  "The speed is one dimension, but the piece that excites me the most about this technology is we can do vaccines that cannot be done using traditional technology," Bancel said.

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. Tesla, for instance, had four cofounders, and none of them were Elon Musk.  And Jack Dorsey is one of four people who helped create Twitter. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

Visual arts: Frieze Los Angeles forges its identity

Frieze Los Angeles arrives here at a time when the importance of international art fairs is being hotly debated. Over the last decade, the press, art critics and activists have been bemoaning the ubiquity and indifference of art fairs to the global climate crisis, serving as a bloated symbol of the elitist art world whose denizens recklessly fly around the globe. Frieze Los Angeles seeks to rise above the backlash by showcasing an eclectic lineup of artists and galleries — both established and u...

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...

The best instant cameras

Instant cameras have improved significantly since the Polaroid was introduced in the 1940s. The best instant camera you can buy is the Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 with its fun retro look, affordable price tag, and built-in selfie mirror. When instant print cameras initially appeared in the 1940s, there was a feeling of wonder surrounding them. The ability to shoot a photo, have the camera eject a blank print, and then eventually see the photo appear on the paper after a short time rarely failed to ...

Large Format Photography & The Power of Process

Steve Sherman is a large format photographer based in Rocky Hill, Connecticut. His work is currently represented by the Paul Paletti Gallery in Louisville, Kentucky.

15+ Best Gifts for Stocking Stuffers

Travel blog by Travels of Adam (Hipster Blog) – Travels of Adam (Hipster Blog) - For as long as I can remember, the highlight of Christmas has always been the stocking.

And when we’d wake in the morning, it was always the first thing we’d see besides the massive bundle of Christmas presents. Our family tradition always put an outsize emphasis on the Christmas stocking....

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...

Dye Transfer and Me: A Meandering Half-Century Journey

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

The Beauty of Degraded Art: Why We Like Scratchy Vinyl, Grainy Film, Wobbly VHS & Other Analog-Media Imperfection

"Whatever you find weird, ugly, or nasty about a medium will surely become its signature," writes Brian Eno in his published diary A Year with Swollen Appendices. "CD distortion, the jitteriness of digital video, the crap sound of 8-bit — all these will be cherished as soon as they can be avoided." Eno wrote that in 1995, when digital audio and video were still cutting-edge enough to look, sound, and feel not quite right yet. But when DVD players hit the market not long thereafter, makin...
