Browsing through the November 2004 issue of National Geographic, I took notice of the "On Assignment" article, which spotlights the photography and photographer of one of the issue's main articles. This issue's feature article was on evolution, titled "Was Darwin Wrong?" and this was also the subject of the "On Assignment" article. I was happily surprised to learn all of the photos were taken for the Darwin article were done in Large Format, and color Polaroid to boot!
This is good proof that LF, and LF Polaroid work, is not dead. National Geo is an iconic publication is several respects, and its photography has always been one of those respects. This feature follows the one in the October issue that was shot in LF tintypes, and I think they are both a strong endorsement for LF work. I may write a letter congratulating NG for their support of LF photography.
