Now that Polaroid film (and cameras) are pretty hard to come by, it'll probably come as no surprise that Polaroid photographs are becoming collectors' items. Enter Sotheby's, which will be auctioning off Polaroid by legendary photographers including David Bailey, Guy Bourdin, Robert Mapplethorpe, Helmut Newton, and Peter Beard on June 21 and 22. Estimates peg the sale to bring in between $7.2 and $11.1 million.
