158 Photographer Portraits shot by Tim Mantoani
Forward by Steve McCurry, Essay by John Reuter

20 X 24" Polaroid Portraits of leading and legendary photographers including William Claxton, Elliott Erwitt, Duane Michals, Steve McCurry, Editta Sherman, Wiliam Wegman,  Lynn Goldsmith, Greg Gorman, Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, Antonin Kratochivil, Elsa Dorfman, John Delaney, Ralph Gibson and many many more...

“I chose the format for two reasons. First, it is very possible that in just a few years, film for this camera will no longer exist. Second, to me this is the ultimate view camera. If you are going to call the greatest living photographers and ask to make a photo of them and you are shooting 35mm digital, they may not take your call. But if you say you are shooting 20×24 Polaroid, they will at least listen to your pitch.” – Tim Mantoani
