Will Polaroid Become a Thing of the Past?

In some sad but not shocking news Polaroid is closing its two remaining film production facilities in Massachusetts and will focus on digital processes. The company is looking into outsourcing production of the film that carries it's name, but if that does not happen the medium will disappear by the end of next year.

It makes me sad, and I know there are a number of artists world wide that will have to make a change if the medium disappears as well.Polaroid series by isofoto
