From 1983 to 1989 he worked as a chief choreographer at the Paris Opera. Nureyev appeared all over the world.

52 years ago – June 17, 1970, American optician Edwin Land patented the Polaroid camera. Edwin Land founded the Polaroid Corporation in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1937 to manufacture optical equipment. During World War II, Land inventions were in great demand: night-vision devices, periscopes, binoculars. Land also received a government mandate to develop a control system for infrared missiles.
As early as 1947, the inventor introduced a camera in which the whole process of creating a photograph took 60 seconds. In 1948, the first commercial Polaroid Land-95 was released in Boston for about $ 90 and sold out in one day. And on June 17, 1970, Edwin Land patented the first fully automated “Polaroid SX 70” pocket camera – just pressing a button and taking a photo in a minute.
As a result of the high sales of the camera, Polaroid’s share price increased 90 times and it was included in the list of the 50 most successful companies in the United States.
