    I just read that. Sad to see it slip away. The photographers who used those cameras also were experts at studio lighting. It was anything but trivial to set up and use the cameras.

    As an aside, I like the term chemical photography rather than analog, which fails to infer a mechanical and/or chemical process. Polaroids are chemical by nature, a real wonder.

    Good grief!
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    Yeah, sad in itself; but celebrities would get their faces shown in galleries and magazines even if the shot had been taken with a disposable cardboard camera.
    Waste of film as far as I'm concerned.

    Just a note that Elsa Dorfman's documentary on Dorfman, "The B-Sides: Elsa Dorfman's Portrait Photography," apparently premiered last weekend at the Telluride Film Festival-- a little review-googling suggests it was well received. So we should see this coming around before too long...
