Today in History: First Polaroid Camera unveiled in 1948

Today in History: First Polaroid Camera unveiled in 1948

68 years ago today, the first consumer-friendly, commercial instant camera was introduced to the American market. Polaroid’s model 95 Land Camera was developed by Edwin Land. The American scientist got his idea while vacationing in Mexico in 1944 when he introduced his daughter Jennifer to the basic principles of photography. Inspired by his daughter’s question why the images taken with the camera could not be seen immediately, Land spent his remaining vacation working on a preliminary design and concept for an instant camera. In November 1947, the businessman presented his new invention at the annual meeting of the “American Optical Society.” Although dismissed by most of his peers as a gimmick, the first Polaroid camera hit the market only one year later. By 1956, Polaroid had sold one million instant cameras. Today, that number has grown to over 165 million.

History: The Berlin Wall falls in 1989

History: The Berlin Wall falls in 1989

Today marks the 28th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. On November 9, 1989, East German officials opened the Berlin Wall, allowing travel from East to West Berlin. The following day, celebrating Germans began to tear the wall down. One of the ugliest and most infamous symbols of the Cold War was soon reduced to rubble. The “fall of the Berlin Wall” paved the way for German reunification, which formally took place on October 3, 1990.

Happy Birthday, Raymond Savignac (1907 – 2002)

Happy Birthday, Raymond Savignac (1907 – 2002)

The Parisian poster artist would be 110 years old if he were still alive today.

We have always been fascinated with the poster art by Raymond Savignac. The French artist began his career in 1935 at the Alliance Graphique under the supervision of Cassandre. He gained fame in 1949 with the publication of his first major poster, Mon Savon. As he states in his autobiography: “I was born as the age of 41, weaned on the udder of the Monsavon cow.” Savignac’s strength was combining a complex concept in a simple design, combined with humor. He is said to be among France’s most influential poster artists of the past fifty years.
