Portrait photographer Elsa Dorfman found her medium in 1980: the larger-than-life Polaroid Land 20×24 camera. For the next 35 years, she captured the “surfaces” of those who visited her Cambridge, Massachusetts, studio: families, Beat poets, rock stars and Harvard notables. As pictures begin to fade and her retirement looms, Dorfman gives Errol Morris an inside tour of her backyard archive.

“You can almost sense Morris smiling off-camera as she pulls each exposure from her file drawers for reminiscing and newfound scrutiny – that’s how strong and warm his admiration is for Dorfman and the humble richness of her work.”
– Robert Abele,  Los Angeles Times
