City as Canvas/MCNY

Monday, February 17th, 2014


Stopped by the ‘City as Canvas’/Martin Wong Collection at the Museum of the City of New York. Great show that featured the work of legends like Dondi, Futura, Lady Pink and Keith Haring. A good one room show, but Martin Wong’s collection is supposedly deep, would have loved to have seen more.

Test Shots with the Impossible Project Instant Lab

Monday, August 26th, 2013


Almost a year ago the Impossible Project debuted the Instant Lab on Kickstarter. We saw it and couldn’t throw our credit card at the screen quick enough. Initially promised for February, delivery was delayed as is often the case when going from prototype to mass production. Our Instant Lab arrived on Friday, here are some sample shots.




We haven’t bothered to read the instructions (“Christmas in August” anyone?) but are stoked so far. The iOS app interface is clean and doesn’t get in your way. All of our prints were on Impossible PX 680, looking forward to tweaking exposure times, film types and finally reading the instruction manual.

Polaroid Photography by Grant Hamilton

Sunday, December 9th, 2012

Just discovered Grant Hamilton’s Polaroid photography, and can’t believe we’ve never seen it before.  A colorful riot of graphic awesomeness and a welcome break from winter’s gray.  Check out the trailer for his film, Time Zero, as well.

While Polaroid instant film is gone, everyday it looks like the Impossible Project, is getting one step (excuse the Polaroid pun) closer to recapturing magic on instant film.
