Wednesday, 7 October 2009

Last year the Polaroid Corporation stopped producing its iconic film and 9 October 2009 is the final use by date for the last batch. To mark the occasion, London's Atlas Gallery is hosting an exhibition featuring Polaroid shots by some of photography’s biggest names. The show proves big isn't always better and among our favourite images there’s a Polaroid by David Bailey of his son Fenton captured with wild hair, a colourful, paint-splashed triptych from contemporary artist Marc Quinn, Helmut Newton fashion shots taken in his studio in 1981, and an Andy Warhol self-portrait. What a fantastic way to mourn the passing of this great form of photography. Polaroid: we miss you already.By Emma Love
