If you’ve been following the saga of the Polaroid camera and its highly prized film, you are probably aware that both face extinction. Artists and fans of the camera are desperate to save it while at the same time buying up any unused film on ebay and Craig’s List. Rumors often circulate of a possible resurrection only to end in disappointment. The latest one is that by early 2011 a group in the Netherlands have plans to reopen an old Polaroid factory. Recently the New York Times requested readers to email copies of their photographs. To their surprise they received hundreds of responses. Take some time to view them here.

I suggest you check out this website – http://www.the-impossible-project.com/ – I think we can consider that rumor to be true :) While they haven’t quite perfected the film, it’s already producing stunning results that enthusiastic photographers are posting on the site for review.
mpaulphoto- Thanks for the heads up on this…
I went to the Impossible website…all very interesting. I remember having a Polaroid in the late 60’s. I just might visit the NYC store.
