Polaroid Land Camera

The design of old objects has always interested me. My house is decorated with a mix of 1940's and 50's furniture, with a few prized pieces from the turn of the century. Somehow, they visually coexist harmoniously.

While working on the antique typewriter commission, I found this 1960's Polaroid Land Camera on eBay. As soon as I saw the small auction photo, I could see this painting. Something about the shapes, as well as the blue logo and flash, just called to me.
