Polaroid took a step forward in both form and function when it released its sleek SX-70 in April of 1972. “Don’t undertake a project, unless it is manifestly important and nearly impossible,” said Polaroid co-founder Edwin Land. The immediacy provided by a lack of peel-apart film made it the digital camera of its day. Notable photographers and artists, including Lucas Samaras and Andy Warhol, made creative use of the medium, while famous figures of the time were captured in the distinctive Polaroid style.
