"In early 2008 Polaroid ceased production of its instant film. The Impossible Project is a group of enthusiasts and former employees who, in October 2008, took over Polaroid’s factory in Enschede in The Netherlands. Their aim is to keep analogue instant photography alive by producing brand new types of instant films compatible with the original Polaroid cameras. After seventeen months of research and development, The Impossible Project announced that it had succeeded in its task of reproducing a new analogue instant film for traditional Polaroid cameras, saving millions of perfectly functioning Polaroid cameras from becoming obsolete. The launch of the new film by The Impossible Project means that the future of analogue instant photography, an extremely popular medium, is now secure. The first of The Impossible Project’s brand new instant films is available exclusively in the UK from The Photographers’ Gallery Bookshop."
