Why Did They Have to Get Rid of Polaroids…

Have you ever heard of Jamie Livingston?  I hadn’t either until Mental Floss was boasting on Twitter about their most read article of all time.  He was an NYC photographer, film maker, and circus performer that for the last 18 years of his life took a polaroid picture every day.

Check out the website that contains all the photos that remain (some were lost)  The collection includes his engagement and wedding, as well as, his battle with cancer.  The photos were taken up until the day he died.

Part of the Polaroid Collection as of March 30, 1991 (the photos started in 1979)


This photo was the second last to be shot taken on October 24, 1997.  It is his friends in his hospital room, with him laying on the bed in the background.
