Ukulele performer and Film Photography Podcast pal Henrique Couto rolled into town today and would you believe….he was wearing Polaroid Shorts!!!

Polaroid Shorts!

“Where did you get those shorts?” I said.

“My Mom made them.” Henrique replied.

Polaroid Shorts!

The famous multi-color Polaroid packaging was designed by Paul Giambara. Mr Giambara also designed packaging for Tonka Toys, Gillette and others.

In 2009, I launched The Film Photography Podcast, an hour-long, bi-monthly Internet radio program exploring my passion for film photography and covering a wide range of topics relevant to the experienced / aspiring photographer using film as a medium.

  1. Ha!

    It's a great look, and the packaging designs by Mr Giambara are amazing. They still look fresh today, so they must have made a tremendous impact when he released them in the '60s and '70s.
