Large Format Polaroid Instant Photography Lives

20×24 Studio » Where Large Format Polaroid Instant Photography Lives.

Polaroid was the first company to offer   photographers instant gratification. While we mostly think about instant film prints that the company is famous for, the lesser known 20×24 Polaroid camera is something of a rare unknown beast of legend. I recently took a tour to view one right here in NYC at 20×24 Studios. For those of you not as familiar with the Polaroid line, the 20×24 studio camera is an old-school giant that shoots massive 20 inch by 24 inch exposures.

About Farah Mahbub

Farah Mahbub was born and brought up in Karachi. She attained her bachelor’s degree in fine art, literature and psychology. Being primarily self-taught, she has been working as a professional photographer since 1988. Her photographic journey has taken its course through exploration of various genres, ranging from fine art, commercial, architectural and landscape photography. However for her, personal self-expression is best conveyed through fine art photography, which she continues to explore and dedicate her abilities to. Working formerly in analogue, her present work now is primarily in the digital format. As a practicing artist, Farah’s work has been exhibited in both local and international exhibitions including the 11th Asian Art Biennale in Bangladesh and the Mohatta Palace Museum in Pakistan. Her work has also been published in multiple books most notably Journeys of the Spirit: Pakistan Art in the New Millenium. Farah joined the Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture in 1997 as a faculty member, where she has been ever since. Under her tenure, photography has evolved from a single class into an undergraduate minor spanning the Communication Design and Fine Art and Interior Design departments. Farah recently had her fifth solo show "Baraka Silsila-e-Nisbat" with an accompanying monograph. View all posts by Farah Mahbub
