This event is hard to overestimate, not only because of the quantity (about 4400 Polaroids are preserved in Vienna), but above all the quality, since the collection contains Polaroid photographs by Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, Ansel Adams, Robert Mapplethorpe, Paul Huf, Helmut Newton and others. All these famous names feature in the Moscow exhibition.
