Polaroid Auctions Photos

More than 1,000 photographs from the Polaroid collection are being auctioned at Sotheby's in New York City as part of Polaroid's bankruptcy court order. The auction includes images by legendary artists and photographers going back to the 1940s. Some artists are upset that the collection is being auctioned off, believing that they only lent their work to Polaroid.
