The other side of Polaroids

Many of you know that Polaroid has shut down production of its instant films – the days of those white bordered prints are seriously numbered. But there is another, lesser known, Polaroid film that has been a mainstay of photographers for years – Type 55, a 4 inch by 5 inch instant negative film.

On the New York Times’s Lens blog, Fred Conrad talks about it and has an excellent collection of images made with the film.
