I was bit by the instant photography bug back when Polaroid stopped making film and when Impossible re-invented it (Film for Polaroid Cameras that is). And over the course of the years they have stuggled long and hard, and have taken a great deal of my money (I say that not in a bad way) to build up something that can only be described as pure magic in eight frames. Back at the end of October I had a chance to revisit New York City and take a trip to the Impossible Project Store/Gallery on Broadway to pick up and shoot some of their new ColorProtection Film for my Polaroids. In addition to that I shot a pack of their PX100 UV+ SilverShade film.

The best was while I was trying to find my way back to the MTA after getting lost in lower Manhatten (Tribeca area) I came across a woman and her two children, all three where most intrigued by my Rolleiflex, so I also decided to show them my Folding SX-70 Sonar OneStep (Loaded with ColorProtection Film), and took a shot of the three of them, signed it and gave it to them. It was something the woman didn’t even know could be done anymore, and the children were just enthralled by the idea.

Long Live Film.
