The Impossible Project

In February 2008, Polaroid announced that analog instant film would no longer be in production. At the closing event of the Polaroid factory in The Netherlands, now co-founders of the Impossible Project; Florian Kaps (manager of Lomographic society) and Andre Bosman (former Polaroid employee) decided to not let analog instant photography die. With the production machinery from Polaroid purchased, and a building leased just north of the original factory, the Impossible Project was a go. Since the Polaroid color dyes are not available anymore, these guys had to start from scratch to make new photographic system. Here’s a video of the kind of work that goes into this project.

For most of the polaroid cameras you may have lying around your house or maybe see at a flea market, these guys have the film for it, and it’s around $40 cheaper. Check out their website, take a tour of the factory, or even buy some film to have some fun with.
