My Polaroid Selfies: 1981 Book 1 by Melinda Camber Porter

My Polaroid Selfies is book 1 of a series of 3 books of photos taken by Melinda Camber Porter of herself.  She took roughly 1 picture of herself a week for 3 years. She was into selfies before selfies was even a thing. This photo's were taken in the early 80's with a Polaroid Camera.

Melinda became enamored with the Polaroid Camera and being able to get almost instant feedback from the pictures she took. This was new thing back in the 80's. She basically wanted to see if you could read her thoughts from the expressions on her face in each picture.

Also in the book you get the behind the scenes story of the Polaroid Camera. The camera took  Edwin Land over 50 years to produce and market the cameras. Before dying a slow death with the invention of digital camera's. Now with this book it brings back memories of these amazing camera's.

Melinda passed away in 2008 but has left her work in art, journalism, and literature, and this is book 1 of the publisher's way of sharing with us.

I received this book from the Author or Publisher via to read and review.
