The Vienna based WestLicht Museum of Photography has purchased the International Polaroid Collection.
Formed between 1972 and 1990 by Polaroid, the legendary International Collection disappeared for 20 years in the archives of the Swiss Musée de l’Elysée in Lausanne but now Peter Coeln, owner of the WestLicht Museum, has saved the Polaroid Collection which had been put on the market by the liquidators dealing with the assets of the insolvent company.
WestLicht will be exhibiting a selection of these iconic images combined with some new contemporary works shot on new Impossible instant film from June 17 2011.
