Title: The B-Side: Elsa Dorfman’s Portrait Photography- Errol Morris Documentary
Post by: wilder on April 20, 2017, 08:31:34 PM

Portrait photographer Elsa Dorfman found her medium in 1980: the larger-than-life Polaroid Land 20×24 camera. For the next thirty-five years she captured the “surfaces” of those who visit 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.

Directed by Errol Morris
Release Date - Summer TBD
