Carl Gambrell and Rob Kimmel created UnMap to explore urban places, rich in their own history and culture, that are drowned out by larger, more celebrated neighborhoods. Their first and exhibited foray was into Queens. While Brooklyn has challenged Manhattan’s regional crown, asserting itself over the past couple of decades, the other boroughs, home to millions, remain largely in shadow. Gambrell and Kimmel have both lived in New York City for a decade and a half, but neither of them had ever ventured too far into Queens. With UnMap, they spent a month wandering this “dark borough,” both eating and photographing their way through it.

From now until July 31st, visit the Impossible NYC Space to view Gambrell and Kimmel’s UnMap, shot on both Impossible and Polaroid Spectra films around New York City’s Queens borough.
