Images in this collection are taken on The Impossible Project Instant Film. The Impossible Project is a newly formed company (2008) that saved Polaroid's last standing factory in Holland from immanent destruction and resurrected instant photography. Creating new film and developing chemistry from scratch for classic Polaroid cameras was an engineering and scientific feat that is still being perfected to this day.
Artists and photographers alike take the so-called imperfections in the film, such as color shifts, improper spreading of chemistry, and light sensitivity to their advantage, adding to the one-of-a-kindness of this art form.

Medium Format Refers to film size. There are many sizes to choose from within this definition, but currently the most common are 120 and 220.
I shoot this format because the cameras are just amazing. They range from "toy cameras" to Professional Level, and everywhere in between. I am currently shooting with the Mamiya RB67 Pro-S and the FPP Debonair, and I am currently searching for a Rangefinder style camera. In this collection, there are images from both the Mamiya RB and the Film Photography Project's "Toy" camera, the Debonair. Can you tell which one goes to what image?

INSTANT PACK FILM
Shot with the camera that ignited my passion, Polaroid Pack Film (now manufactured by FujiFilm) is as magical as the cameras that are used to shoot with. Polaroid Land Cameras are some of the most recognized cameras in Polaroid's history. Their fold-in design and extending bellows are always a conversation starter.
This peel apart film is also used for lighting checks in medium and large format film cameras. Photographers are now using those same cameras for their fully manual capabilities such as enhanced depth of field and sharpness. This film type has amazing creative potential, and it's like opening a little present every time you separate the picture from the negative.
