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
