Polaroid Type 55 Pos/Neg 4x5 Film Unopened 6/06, 2009
Digital C-Print, 8x10"

Up for bid is an original photograph of an unopened box of Polaroid Type 55 film. The photograph is by Erik Dalzen, and is titled "Polaroid Type 55 Pos/Neg 4x5 Film Unopened 6/06". The photograph measures 8x10 inches (including border). Number 1/10 from a limited edition of 10 prints in this size. Signed, numbered, and dated on the back.

The legendary type 55 film* is the Holy Grail of films, combining an instant black and white positive print and printable negative for every shot. Long out of production, each box is a testament to Polaroid's better days. The negatives are fine grained, with a long tonal range, and exceptionally high resolution. One box provides 20 relics-to-be–do shoot wisely. Passed expiration but stored cool, dry and dark for great results today.
*This is only background information about the box of film pictured. The actual film is not included in this auction. If you are the winning bidder you will receive a photograph in the mail.

Auction ends: 07.21.2009 12:59:09 PDT Place a bid.
