Lou Di Giorgio preparing Polaroid 8x10 shot in Kirghizia
Preparing the Polaroid 8x10" shot in Bishkek, Kirghizia (former URSS) - 1989

During 1988-1992 myself with my girlfriend we did a world tour with the aim to photograph native people with a Polaroid camera in 8x10 inches size. I end up to create a unique collection of about 50 Polaroid photos which you can see here (it requires Adobe Flash). As a camera I used a Japanese folding cherry wood camera, a Tachihara 8x10" with a Rodenstock Apo-Ronar 1:9/300mm lens. Part of the tour we did with a special 4x4 camper and you can see the documentary here. My girlfriend wrote also a diary in Italian.

 

In 2021, I decided to put some of those photography for sell in the new digital NFT format to preserve the uniqueness of the original Polaroids
