Starting with Edwin Land's development of the instant camera in the 1940s, Doc explores the ways in which Polaroid cameras have influenced visual culture in the seventy years since then, including family portraits, fine art, erotica, anthropology, journalism and fashion. The book describes the ways in which the technology developed and catalogues the range of models produced. The book also tells the story of how Doc revived production of film with The Impossible Project, founded in 2008, and explores how the reasons that led Polaroid to discontinue production in a world transformed by digital photography are the very reasons why there is ever growing demand for the magic of instant photography today."@en ;
