Visit The Impossible Project Space NYC this Saturday to celebrate the release of the brand new Impossible PX 680 Color Shade First Flush film and – as if that’s not enough – Edwin Land’s 102nd Birthday!
To mark these two incredibly momentous occasions, we have a crazy awesome offer for our NYC friends. With your purchase of at least 2 packs of PX 680 film, you can grab a FREE Polaroid 600 rental camera to use for the entire weekend!! Actually, since the cameras are due back by 7pm on Monday, it’s really almost 3 entire days! (Of course we have a limited stock of available cameras, so it’s first-come, first-served and while supplies last.)
For those who would rather buy than rent, we understand, so we’re also offering our entire stock of 600 cameras at 10% off. And as a final bonus, we will have our Edwin Land books and prints at great sale prices. There will be some other on-the-spot surprises, but you’ll have to come by the shop to find out.

Around 100 people attended the Open Day at the Impossible Factory in Enschede (NL) on May 9 – and enjoyed in-depth tours through the factory, a Question & Anwer session with André Bosman, Florian Kaps and Marwan Saba, Dutch snacks as well as special offers at the Factory Outlet.
It was such a pleasure to have you all here and we are already thinking of holding another Open Day this fall – stay tuned for details!

The Transparencies Technique frees your Impossible images from their background and allows creation of sensational transparent instant artworks, lets the sunshine in and converts your Impossible instant images into lucent pieces of precious art.
Please proceed carefully as follows:
› Take a pair of scissors and precisely cut off the outermost edges of your freshly developed image. This works best if the image is no older than 24 hours.
› Take a hairdryer, carefully and moderately heat the picture (not too close and not too hot!), don’t get too close and slowly peel off the transparent positive (upper) sheet with the frame.
› Enjoy the new transparent dimension of your Impossible instant pictures.

The drop-dead gorgeous portraits in this video were shot with our PX 680 Beta film by the entirely amazing photographer EJ Camp. Prints of these images were used to make an impressive and (we think) stunning full-wall display in the newly revamped Co-Op Food & Drink restaurant in the Hotel on Rivington here in New York City.
Take a deep breath and behold:
The remodeling at the Hotel Rivington is nearly complete and you will be able to view the massive wall of 40-inch prints very soon. Keep your ear to the ground for further updates from us Impossibles!
