cameras polaroid

Frank Ockenfels III:

I tried to use a Polaroid portrait camera to shoot Trent Reznor once and it was such a disaster. I had this idea of doing a great 4 x 5 portrait of him, then he showed up with this hair that looked like a crow. I mean, it was really coming off his face!

It was disastrous!  It just looked so ridiculous and I was like, “Oh fuck, what am I supposed to do with this?”. Eventually I just told him that I really wanted to shoot him in profile. He was actually a really great guy - so supportive and not negative at all.
