Polaroid often collaborates with artists, creating special editioned versions of their iconic instant film cameras adorned with contemporary artworks, and Jean-Michel Basquiat's is the latest to do so. 

Past collaborations with Keith Harring and David Bowie saw their artwork grace the body and film frame of some of the best instant cameras, showcasing Polaroid's 'dedication to preserving artistic heritage and encouraging a creative revival'. The new collaboration with Basquiat will transform the Polaroid Now Generation 2 and i-type film with the French artist's designs, encouraging creativity.
