Andy Warhol loved Polaroid – it probably helped that Polaroid gave him a lifetime supply of free film (something they did with many photographers, including Walker Evans). Polaroid cameras let him document and collect instantly. He had a number of the instant-film cameras, including the Polaroid Big Shot and the Polaroid SX-70 land camera. Well, his SX-70 is going up for auction on May 18 via Julien’s Auctions, giving you roughly five days to save your money. It’s expected to fetch between $6,000 and $8,000 dollars – which isn’t too bad for an artifact from one of the 20th century’s most important artists. Plus, it comes with an unused flash bar – a $13 value right there.

We’re big fans of Instant film around here which is why we introduced our Polaroid-inspired “Catalina” photo book template as part of our Designer Collection. It’s a nice way to show your photos, in the classic frames that Warhol and so many others loved so much.
