The B-Side: Elsa Dorfman’s Portrait Photography

Saturday, September 10, 2022
1-2:30 pm CST At IPHF
3415 Olive St, St. Louis, MO


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 visited 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.
