Polaroids have always had a soft spot in my photo-geekish heart.
I love the way they smell and the way they always have imperfections.
The following photographers work with polaroids on various projects.
There is something about the immediate, original, non-reproducible (for the most part) images they create and how all mistakes, coincidences and moments unrepeated are caught. These very things keep me from tossing away polaroid cameras even though I fail to ever buy the instant film they need.

polaroids have a sense of intimacy and honesty that i love. i just picked up a beautiful book by photographer arno fischer of polaroids from the 70's in his and his wife's garden.
