"Having been through the dissolution of the company, not only is my work in the collection and I can't get it, and a lot of it was my best work, at certain periods of my life, but I also saw people who were incredible people who made this film and made Polaroid a great company, lose their jobs for no good reason really. So the auction is almost the funeral in a way, because it is the last act in the dissolution of Polaroid." - John Reuter

These Polaroids, and many others, are being auctioned off at Sotheby's as part of the company's bankruptsy court order.
