"The camera is part of an evolving human being."

In Edwin H. Land, built a massive sprawl of factories in Massachusetts to build a new generation of instant cameras that would be as affordable as the "pack cameras" that were pervasive in the market. He anticipated a compact camera that would become a tool as commonplace as a pencil. This was a harbinger not only for a new camera to be produced in his factories but also the digital revolution that would make manifest his prophecy, and thereby make his invention obsolete.
