I was really lucky to get to go on a Photography trip to Barcelona recently with seven of my course mates. We had a fantastic time and got to see some incredible sights. I got to see a Christian Boltanski piece and a Rineke Dijkstra from her ‘Young mothers’ series, both of which was very inspiring.On our first day when we were on our way out of our apartment, I Spotted this logo on one of the buildings opposite.
We all thought what a strange coincidence it was to have gone on a photography trip and to have accidentally ended up staying over the road from a pretty unique polaroid shop.
For those of you who don’t know abou the Impossible project here is a little summary of what they do.
‘In October 2008 The Impossible Project saved the last Polaroid production plant for integral instant film in Enschede (NL) and started to invent and produce totally new instant film materials for traditional Polaroid cameras. In 2010 Impossible saved analog instant photography from extinction by releasing various, brand new and unique instant films.’
Now with an entire shop to choose from I just didn’t know what to do with myself but after much deliberating I decided to buy myself some on the newer unique polaroid that they were selling. Though very tempted by the Gold framed stuff, I got myself this little box.
This is black and white, silvershade, Polaroid film, with a black frame!!
I haven’t used it yet, it’s still exactly like this in the box waiting to be opened!!
Here is an example of it given on the Impossible website.
