The Polaroid Wall is a collection of 2,620 Polaroids taken over an 18-year period at IPA, The Editing House in Chicago. It is an historic account of the writers, editors, producers, artists, and, thankfully, clients who hung out there from 1982 to 2000. You can swipe around the wall for a sense of the place, zoom in on individual photos, or search it name, year or themes.
The photos capture employees and clients in late night editing sessions, on construction weekends, at production shoots and, of course, parties celebrating a community of independent film and video producers coming of age.

In the 1970s, 80s and 90s, thousands of Polaroid photographers realised that the white-framed images looked fantastic in sequences, and built their own walls of Polaroids. Polaroid technology now lives on digitally in this smart new app, a Polaroid Wall, 2.0.
