February 21, 1947. The instant camera is a type of camera that generates a developed film image. The most popular types to use self-developing film were formerly made by Polaroid Corporation. The invention of modern instant cameras is generally credited to American scientist Edwin Land, who unveiled the first commercial instant camera, the Land Camera, in 1948, a year after unveiling instant film in New York City. In this image: The Polaroid Land Camera model 103.

Patti Smith, Cherub, Fountain, San Severino, 2008, black-and-white photograph, 10 x 8".

WINGED BOY WITH A DOLPHIN AFTER ANDREA DEL VERROCCHIO (SAN SEVERINO MARCHE, ITALY)

In this medieval comune, whose land tells a human history dating back to ancient times, there is a small museum (the Pinacoteca Civica “Tacchi Venturi”) that houses the holy slippers and cap of Saint Celestine V, the reluctant pope who died in a small stone cell for seeking freedom from the church. The relics are quite moving, but I return again to see the humble winged cherub, draped in ivy above the courtyard fountain. Part Puck, part Raphaelesque child, the little fellow seems the embodiment of love. The original bronze in the Palazzo Vecchio is flawless, but this weathered twin, with his bemused and benevolent smile, is the one that truly captures the heart.   – ArtForum
