Impossibe Project’s pop-up shop at space15twenty
Living in a creative household filled with music, art, video and photography, we were stoked to find out that the Impossible Project was setting up shop at space15twenty in Hollywood! In honor of MOPLA (month of photography LA) space15twenty is hosting some pretty rad events this month of April.
In 2008 Impossible Project started to invent and produce totally new instant film materials for traditional Polaroid cameras. In 2010 Impossible saved analog instant photography from extinction by releasing various, brand new and unique instant films. Justin (my super creative and amazing photographer boyfriend) has been purchasing this film since the beginning of production…he’s been the hit of so many parties with his mass collection of Polaroid cameras thanks to the production of this new film.
The walls were lined with Polaroids of Los Angeles, even Polaroid cameras themselves. A nice selection of vintage cameras and accessories too. The main reason we went, however, was to get a portrait taken with Impossible’s new 8×10 peel-apart polaroid film! At a mere $190 for a pack of 10 pictures, $40 for the portrait session was definitely a deal.
Above is the camera that uses the 8×10 film, Justin in front of the disco backdrop and the processor that instantly printed our portrait. Josie of Impossible’s team is an incredible photographer and took an amazing shot of us! I must say it was a little nerve-racking that we only got one shot…
Looking forward to more and more awesomeness from the Impossible Project!
