Swann Auction House has blogged some color Polaroids by one of the masters of 20th C. photography, Ansel Adams. As they point out, “These small-format Polaroids represent two qualities not often associated with Adams: a small scale and color.”

Adams was a consultant for Polaroid in the late 1940 and these studies point to ways he was experimenting with landscape. In his autobiography, he wrote:

Many of my most successful photographs from the 1950’s onward have been made on Polaroid film. One look at the tonal quality of the print I have achieved should convince the uninitiated of the truly superior quality of Polaroid film.
