We, the artists and photographers, whose work relies on Polaroid instant film and cameras have recently had our preferred artistic media taken away from us. In a recent article http://www.boston.com/business/technology/articles/2008/02/08/polaroid_shutting_2_mass_facilities_laying_off_150/ we learned that Polaroid is, in fact, interested in licensing its technology so that some other interested party can continue the manufacture of its instant film types. In particular, we are targeting Fujifilm, which seems like the most likely candidate, though we would be glad to present this petition to other interested parties. This is an art form which should not yet die. Please, sign to help keep the instant film types available to artists and photographers!
