'The B Side'
Trace the lineage of the Polaroid as an perma-trendy style of photography, and you'll end up at the works of esteemed portraitist Elsa Dorfman. Working with an unorthodox large-size 20"x24" insta-cam, she captured intimate moments with everyone from bohos like Bob Dylan and Allen Ginsburg to bona fide rock stars like Steven Tyler. Now documentarian and (and Dorfman's personal friend) Errol Morris gives her the cineprofile treatment, tracing her artistic evolution as she regales him with anecdotes and scattered memories along the way. Smile and say "art!" CB
