I've seen Joachim Knill's large Polaroids at the Fort Worth Main Street Arts Festival. Gorgeous stuff. He constructs elaborate still lifes with items seemingly suspended in air and emphasizes the almost surrealistic effect by using camera movements for selective focus across disorienting planes. If I could afford to collect fine art photography some of his work would be in my collection. It's so different from anything I do that I'm not tempted to analyze or figure it out - I just enjoy it.
BTW, Knill built his own camera. He includes a photo of himself with the camera in his booth displays. Unfortunately it's impractical to actually lug the camera to these shows - I bet that'd draw a crowd.
