    20x24 polaroid pictures

    Ran across this article on large polaroids:

    http://www.making-ripples.com/2006/0..._me_did_y.html

    Has some interesting shots of the camera. Evidently the film is going to run out soon for these.

    Best,

    Dear Will,

    Thanks for the link. Apart from the 'museum' quote I saw nothing to suggest that film was going to run out. Have you further information on this? I have an especially soft spot for these monsters as Polaroid kindly made a 20x24 portrait of my wife and me in 1995 with the Great Camera of Prague; it hangs on my séjour wall yet, a fascinating piece of technology.

    Cheers,

    Roger

    the article talks about that camera disappearing; however , there is more than 1 20x24 camera in use , so perhaps that is where the disconnect is happening.

    No indication of plans to discontinue on the Polaroid website--

    http://www.polaroid.com/studio/20x24/rental/index.html

    It sounded to me like the blog author just assumed that such things were dinosaurs, and the photographers probably said something like "who knows how long this stuff will be around?" and he may have taken that to mean that the camera was headed for a museum.

    The writer doesn't seem to know much about what he's writing about. He makes the usual unfounded journalist assumptions. Notice he keeps saying that the photographers "attempt" to "capture" the dancers.

    Where's that thread about few women using Large Format? These girls look fairly young too.

    Linda Broadfoot, a friend of mine uses one of the 20 x 24 cameras for her work.
    She does image transfers with those huge sheets... see some of them here at
    the Weston gallery... http://www.westongallery.com/artists...broadfoot.html

    I haven't heard anything about the camera being retired.

    From 11-21 2006. It was on the web so it must be true, right?

    I believe we have one here in Salt Lake City at the Waterford School. I have seen some work done in Macro with it. Instant film feedback with that oh-so-true color.

    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.
