Schöne Geschichte, die Vintage Everyday da ausgegraben hat:

1979 zogen die amerikanischen Künstler Bettie Ringma und Marc H. Miller von New York nach Amsterdam und schossen mit ihrer Polaroid SX-70 Portraits von den Party-People jener Zeit. Die Fotos verkauften sie anschließend für 6 Gulden/ 3$ und machten eigenen Angaben nach jede Menge Cash.

“Every night we headed out for 4 or 5 hours seeking customers in Amsterdam’s entertainment districts,” Marc Miller says. “Although at first we were not sure we would succeed, in retrospect I can see our success was virtually assured. Dutch art history is full of portraits done in bars and taverns, but apparently we were the first to update this tradition with instant photographs. Our Polaroid camera was a money machine fueled by alcohol; each photo sold for 6 guilders (approx. $3) and we usually took more than 50 pictures a night. We were soon a fixture of the city’s nightlife with many regular customers eager to get new pictures whenever we happened to cross their path.”

Achtung: Jede Menge Schnurrbärte, Koteletten, Langhaare voraus! (Und erst die Mode. Die Mode!)
