20 x 24 polaroids

In early 2011 David's longtime friend and colleague Mark Sobczack gave David access to one of the 5 original large format view cameras made by Polaroid in the late 1970's. For 2 months it was housed at Hochbaum's studio in the East Village, Manhattan. With access to as much outdated stock film and negative as he could shoot, Hochbaum set off to create a treasure trove of one-of-a-kind  prints on a now discontinued medium. 

Besides the installations and photographs he created, he invited friends and family to come by and have their Polaroid taken while he still had access to it. Here is a curated collection of some of the large format Polaroids Hochbaum created with the help of Sobczack.
