Daring the Impossible

Saving analog instant photography from extinction In a world where everything, even our daily lifes, are heading towards digital it may either seem a.) stupid and naive b.) crazy and freaky or c.) helplessly nostalgic to risk all you have for some traditional, analog tool. But it's neither because of a.), b.) or c.) that the people of Impossible started their initially seemingly Impossible project. In late 2008 Impossible saved the last, intact original Polaroid production plant in Enschede (NL) with one great ambition: to save analog instant photography by inventing a new formula and carrying production of instant film for old Polaroid cameras into the 21st century. Not only were the founders of Impossible personally deeply in love with the magical characteristics of Polaroid photography, but also were many of their artist and photographer friends who mourned the end of instant film when Polaroid stopped its production in 2008. Beyond there is the impressing number of 300 million Polaroid cameras that Polaroid sold in its best years. Millions of those cameras are still perfectly functioning and out there, but film for all those cameras became harder and harder to get.

Impossible didn't want to accept such an end for Polaroid photography. With a small team of former Polaroid employees they started inventing a new instant film at the factory in Enschede. Since early 2010 they are producing various film types for Polaroid 600, SX 70 and Image/Spectra camera models - completely independent from the new Polaroid management and the Lady Gaga fuss. With their films Impossible is dissolving the limits of traditional analog instant photography. Other than the highly standardized Polaroid film, Impossible films are an invitation to creativity and experiments, to passionate productions, unique artworks and splendid surprises. So Beppe Bolchi, an Italian artist and photographer, says: "Impossible films are the best test bench to demonstrate your own photographic ability." It's true. Impossible keeps variety, tangibility and creativity alive and thus changes the contemporary world of photography.

“” “If a day goes by without my doing something related to photography, it’s as though I’ve neglected something essential to my existence, as though I had forgotten to wake up.” Richard Avedon “The photographs don’t arouse me. All I can think about is the hard work it took to make them.”. Helmut Newton “A lot of it’s experimental, spontaneous. It’s about knocking about in the studio and bumping into things.”. Richard Prince

“I’m trying to create flesh architecture. I aim to get a sculptural feel for groups of bodies, as well as create performance art.”. Spencer Tunick
