My grandfather had the coolest camera of all-time: a Polaroid that took black and white photos. I was hooked and I became a Polaroid girl when I grew up. I had my Olympus 35mm for serious photography, but my Polaroid was the one that I took on trips. I used it often to quickly capture events as they happened and to record sudden inspirations. Some of these images found their way into my paintings. Polaroid is making a comeback! Lady Gaga has signed on as creative director of a specialty line of Polaroid products.
