In 2006, a US photographer, Tim Mantoani, rented a large-format camera: the 20×24 Polaroid captured portraits of world-famous photographers standing in the picture that helped them out. He took the title of “Behind Photographs” with the intention of saving the present portrait of over 150 as the author behind the photos we still glorify. Each of their photos is a great story for humanity and their lives are also great stories in the world of photography.
The camera used by Tim Mantoani to make this photo is the 20×24 Polaroid. This is a camera of the type “instant camera” film taken in large format: 20 inches x 24 inches produced by Polaroid. Currently, this line is very rare in the world but many people like to use, and in the United States, people often go to some Studio or Polaroid agent to hire for a photo project only. At present, the small camera “camera” is pretty much produced by Fujifilm and Polaroid produces only the biggest 8×10 “.
