    Joe McNally did this. It was his "Faces of Ground Zero" project. He photographed 272 people that were at ground zero of 9/11 or are family members of those that did not make it. He used the Moby C Polaroid. It produced 4 foot by 9 foot polaroids. This was in 2002 and the project raised over 2 million dollars. You can buy the book as well.

    It's a great book, and it's nice to see a book of portraits of people who aren't celebrities for a change.

    I think this is a much more viable project than trying to revive 4x5 or 8x10 Polaroid. 20x24 is for art purposes only, and in that niche market it has a good chance to survive...

    I have seen some of these 20x24 shots live in an exhibition, and they are awesome... just like the camera needed to shoot them!

    "I don't know, maybe we should disinvent color, and we could just shoot Black & White." - David Burnett in 1978

    a coupla years ago I toured the campus of MassArt in Boston where they have a 20x24 polaroid. William Wegman used that one I think. I didn't end up going there for school but it would've been neat to use that camera.
