Beginning Friday, Oct. 8 and stretching through Dec. 22nd, Levi’s second Workshop lands in New York City. Where the San Francisco Workshop was all about printing, the NYC Workshop will be all about photography. According to the Workshop site:
New York City has long been the photographer’s muse. And to celebrate this city and its people, Levi’s® is opening their second community-based venue for collaboration and creative production: The Levi’s® Photo Workshop. These public facilities feature a professional-grade studio, vintage camera rental, and a myriad of other bits and bobs to keep you shooting in style. For several months, we are inviting leaders from a variety of cultural fields, non-profit organizations, artists and the general public to share valuable resources.
If you’re in the greater New York City area on Saturday October 9 from 4-6pm, please join Anne Bowerman and Dave Bias of Impossible America at the first of TWO presentations at Levi’s Photo Workshop. We will focus on the brief but illustrious history of the Impossible Project and touch on how we all came together, what we have had to do to create new film, and a brief look into our future. The Workshop is open to the public all day long, so feel free to check it out early and stay for our presentation.
We will have film and cameras on hand to demonstrate, and in conjunction with the first Levi’s Photo Workshop theme – “Photographing New York” – we will be encouraging everyone to use this...Read All

The Impossible Project Space NYC is proud to invite you to the New York launch party, exhibition & book signing for “100 Polaroids” by Patrick Sansone.
You might know Pat from the bands Wilco and The Autumn Defense, but we bet you didn’t know that he was an instant photographer as well! Pat will be on hand to sign his brand new book “100 Polaroids” and speak with the crowd about his inspirations and techniques. A selection of his original prints from the book will be exhibited on our south wall and Pat has put together a special music playlist for the event.
There will be free wine, books for sale, and special on-the-spot discounts on Impossible products.

The Impossible team are constantly trying to test & improve techniques on preserving the original images that come out of your camera. The newest solution we’ve been trying, is to cello tape the back of the images along the rails / framework to stop air or moisture getting in or out. And try to store the images upright or stick them on your wall and we’ve found success in freezing them in a zip lock bag for a few days also. This has proven, so far, to prevent fading or shifting in tone.
