Nobuyoshi Araki: Sakura

Nobuyoshi Araki: Sakura | Film Photography Rules! | Scoop.it

Known for his darkly erotic portraits of women and his suggestive shots of flowers, Japan’s prolific Nobuyoshi Araki set out to harness the stunning cherry blossom season in Tokyo for this exclusive series. An annual occurrence in the Japanese capital and the center of centuries of local tradition and literary inspiration, the sakura flower has very rarely featured in Araki’s oeuvre. This year, as the trees bloomed early in Tokyo, the celebrated lensman used vintage Polaroid film, framing the vibrant pink flowers’ silhouettes with a distinctive, pitch-dark corroded border.

'The Polaroid Years' Book Explores The Retro Camera's Influence On Photography

'The Polaroid Years' Book Explores The Retro Camera's Influence On Photography | Film Photography Rules! | Scoop.it

Edwin Land, the inventor of the Polaroid camera, spoke in front of one of his factories in 1970 and dreamt up the camera of the future: "A camera which you would use not on the occasion of parties only, or of trips only, or when your grandchildren came to see you, but a camera that you would use as often as your pencil or your eyeglasses."As Christopher Bonanos at the Wall Street Journal points out, Land predicted unbelievable technological advancements -- the Polaroid camera was just the first step.

Six Artists in Sixty Seconds

Six Artists in Sixty Seconds | Film Photography Rules! | Scoop.it

We think of Polaroid instant film as something for ordinary snapshots, but it often became a medium for serious artists. From the beginning, no less an artist than Ansel Adams recognized its potential. Aided by his proselytizing, Polaroid soon caught the eye of prominent photographers. Some used it just for lighting tests before shooting conventional film, but others embraced it on its own merits. In this excerpt, adapted from New York senior editor Christopher Bonanos’s Instant: The Story of Polaroid (out this week from Princeton Architectural Press), you’ll see six artists who took it in unique and beautiful directions.

How The Impossible Project Gave Polaroid Cameras A New Lease On Life

How The Impossible Project Gave Polaroid Cameras A New Lease On Life | Film Photography Rules! | Scoop.it
A Polaroid camera is nothing more than bookshelf eye candy if you don't have the magical film to go with it. Which is why The Impossible Project pulled out every stop in the innovation playbook to reinvent that film.

Edwin Land, an inventor and the cofounder of Polaroid, once said, "Don't undertake a project unless it is manifestly important and nearly impossible."

MediaPost Publications The Apple Parallel Steve Jobs -Apple and Edwin Land Polaroid | Film Photography Rules! | Scoop.it

The Apple Parallel - 10/10/2012... by Barbara Lippert

 

"He was a college dropout, obsessed with product design and patenting pocket inventions. A visionary and perfectionist with sophisticated tastes, he lived to invent covetable products that would not only change the world, but were also beautiful to look at and easy to use. Thus, he built a tiny garage start-up into an international corporate giant that managed to revolutionize the art world and pop culture and still maintain a stock price in the stratosphere. At annual stockholder meetings, the focus was solely on him: he personally demonstrated the brand’s latest innovations on a dramatically lit stage, and the combination was magic. Oh, and he also ran great ads.

A eulogy for Steve Jobs on the first anniversary of his death?

Nope. Actually, I’m describing the larger-than-life inventor/entrepreneur Edwin Land (1910-1991), founder of Polaroid, who happened to be Steve Jobs’ hero, and on whom Jobs modeled much of his role at Apple..."
