Photography: Ciao, Polaroid

Thanks, Chai Guy, for the heads-up...

"Polaroid is closing factories in Massachusetts, Mexico and the Netherlands and cutting 450 jobs as the brand synonymous with instant images focuses on ventures such as a portable printer for images from cell phones and Polaroid-branded digital cameras, televisions and DVD players. [This] will leave Polaroid with 150 employees at its Concord headquarters and a site in the nearby Boston suburb of Waltham, down from peak global employment of nearly 21,000 in 1978." [more here]

Polaroid transfers and emulsion lifts may soon will be a thing of the past! [sniff, sniff]
