When Polaroid announced the end of instant film in 2008, Impossible bought the last remaining factory, days before it closed down. The machines had been dismantled, there were no formulas to follow and the supply chain had already been destroyed. ‘If we wanted to keep instant photography alive, we had to reinvent instant film from scratch. We believe in making real photos. Photos with a life after the shutter clicks. Photos that develop in the palm of your hand, ready to pin to the wall or give to a friend. That’s why we’ve spent eight years working on our film formula. It’s why we’re reinventing analog instant photography in a digital world’ they say.
