This exhibition is the first to explore autobiography in the work of Elsa Dorfman (b. 1937), a beloved Cambridge photographer known for her large-format commissioned portraits. Working with a 200-pound, 20 x 24 Polaroid camera, one of only a few in existence, Dorfman has photographed friends, artists, and celebrities, all with disarming informality.
