The very talented Toronto Star photog Lucas Oleniuk was assigned to shoot a high school prom with a Polaroid camera. He dug up some Polaroid film that expired in 2007 but it was no longer usable. He switched the assignment to film, using a 4x5 camera.
The results are nice but one has to wonder whether the same thing could not have been done with a digital camera. Do photo editors and papers try too hard to be retro?
