In the 1970s photographers were shooting a billion Polaroid photographs each year yet today the company is essentially non-existent.  What went wrong? Edwin Land, the founder of Polaroid was a legendary intellectual corporate leader that started out doing research in polarizing filters and ended up revolutionizing photography by creating a totally new technology of film development. As a company, Polaroid was also known for supporting artists like Ansel Adams. Tune in tonight for a history of this amazing corporation when we speak with CHRISTOPHER BONANOS, writer and editor at New York Magazine. His new outstanding and profusely illustrated history is titled INSTANT: THE STORY OF POLAROID.
