    New to Netflix this month:
    "The B-Side: Elsa Dorfman's Portrait Photography". A documentary by Errol Morris.
    I haven't watched yet, so I can't comment.

    This has disappeared from Netflix. Hopefully, it will return soon. If someone notices, please post.

    Anybody ever in touch with Weston G. his former TA?

    Lots of movement on the original 5 cameras over the years.
    There was one in Tokyo between '83 and '86, which was the camera Elsa ended up having in her studio later.
    There was a camera in Germany that later went to Prague.
    There was one at SMFA later MassArt.
    The NYC studio obviously.
    One camera was given to Dr Land, which saw very little use.
    The camera I brought to San Francisco in '97 was a reworked prototype that predated the "official" 5.
    thanks for the info ( and history ) tracy !
    i haven't seen much of seigfried's TAs except for chris d'
    after i was there there was andrew K, and but during my time with him i think rodney p was a TA
    now that i think of it, there might have been someone else too clean cut+tall short dark hair
    but that would have been in the early/mid 80s. it might have been weston i wish i could remember his name !
    if it was him, i haven't seen him since then < yikes ! >
    back in the day i remember seigfried's flashlight series was on the wall of gallery 7 ( i think that was the name ) and they were monstrous
    polaroids ... he suggested they were "the big ones" and done in some cave in santa fe, but he might have been pulling our legs
    back then 8x10 was pretty big too, so my ignorance is probably getting the best of me.
