Polaroid Selfies from the 80s

Before social media posted iPhone photo selfies and even before social media was a thing, Polaroid was the King of selfies.

Above I have a small sample of selfies I took in the early 80s with a Polaroid 660 camera. Many of them I manipulated for "Special FX" by using a wooden stylus to push the chemicals around through the plastic cover while the image developed.

Happy 80th Birthday Polaroid!
