The Biggest Book of Portraits in the World 20x24 Polaroids

The ICONS Opus The Titan is the heaviest Opus ever created, the largest in size and the most exclusive, with a print run of only 25. It is a strong investment and art installation/museum piece. It showcases iconic portraits taken on one of the worlds most important cameras, the 20x24 Polaroid Land Camera.

90cm tall, this landmark celebration reproduces the giant Polaroids at life-size or larger, allowing the magnificent detail captured by the camera to be reproduced on a scale never before seen.

150 glorious portraits of Opus icons have been curated by the featured Polaroid photographer, Zenon Texeira, from the specially commissioned photo-shoots at the Super Bowl, Wimbledon Tennis Championships, Paris Fashion Week, Silverstone Grand Prix and training grounds at Manchester United, Arsenal, Spurs and Celtic.

POLAROID LAND CAMERA

Only 5 of these legendary camera’s were ever built by Polaroid during their heyday in 1976. Made by their expert technicians using only mechanical parts, the camera produced unmatched detail on a scale never before attempted. The extra long chemical pods exploded inside the camera to allow the developing agent to work its magic

The Cause

We are a charity that supports vulnerable, homeless, marginalised people and Veterans. We help them transform their lives, providing accommodation and helping them gain the skills, confidence and opportunities to live their lives independently.

We are driven by a passion to care for those that are overlooked, neglected, abandoned and made vulnerable by society, in a way that does not judge but rather offers hope and practical care for those who need it most.

Alabaré believes that if we work together, we can achieve our vision of a society where everyone has the opportunity to live a fulfilling life. Alabaré supports rough sleepers, young parents and their babies, vulnerable women, adults with addictions, mental ill-health, and learning difficulties, young people leaving the care system, and Veterans.  Each year Alabaré supports around 2,000 people by providing a safe home and support through 90 Homes and Services in the South West, South and throughout Wales.

Alabaré is the largest provider of homes for Veterans outside of London, with 23 homes in eleven areas in the South, South West, and Wales. Alabaré must raise £815,000 to support the vulnerable and homeless Veterans gain the skills, opportunities and confidence to live transformed lives outside of the military community.
