Elsa Dorfman

Elsa Dorfman (born April 26, 1937) is an American portrait photographer working in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She is known for using a large-format Polaroid camera. It's a fine and well-timed portrait of her life and work. Since she has extensive experience, it is also a historical depiction of photography from the time she started with black and white photography to the present day. Among other things, she used Polaroid's 20 x 24 big screen formats. There were only five copies of the camera and she had access to one that she rented for her portraits.
