The Camera Does the Rest

How Polaroid Changed Photography

The Camera Does the Rest: How Polaroid Changed Photography Book by Peter Buse

In this fascinating book, Peter Buse explores the cultural phenomena around Polaroid, the progenitors of the radical changes that digital cameras, smart phones, the internet, and social media would bring to photography.

Buse makes the magic of the Polaroid moment vivid for those readers for whom that era is now a faint memory and for those readers too young to have experienced it
