With this post I return, after a 10-month hiatus, to one of the two main stories that have preoccupied me here at Photocritic International since I inaugurated this blog in June 2009: the dismantling of the unique, world-famous Polaroid Collection, which I’ve tracked in more than two dozen posts (plus a number of Guest Posts by others) over the past two-and-a-half years.

A film by Peter Olejnik and Edward Peters.
