Julian Schnabel, the American painter, sculptor and filmmaker has been taking unique photographs for over a decade using a rare twenty by twenty-four inch Polaroid Land camera made in the 1970s. Many of the works are portraits of the artist’s family and friends. Schnabel took his first Polaroid picture in 2002 with the twenty by twenty-four inch handmade camera. Only six of these cameras are still known to exist. The large-format Polaroid film allows for a wide range of tones and shades that are unrivalled in their nuances.
