The B Side: Elsa Dorfman's Portrait Photography says
From legendary documentarian Errol Morris (whose extensive oeuvre is the subject of a retrospective, June 16–20: comes one of his warmest films, an endearing look at the life and work of portrait photographer Elsa Dorfman Photography. A magician with the large-format Polaroid Land 20x24 camera, Dorfman has taken thousands of pictures over several decades—Bob Dylan and Allen Ginsberg among her subjects. Morris gets a personal tour through Dorfman’s archive as she reflects on the art of photography. What subtly emerges is a study of how we see ourselves and that strange meeting point of real and fake, encapsulated by the still image.
