Blurbarians, if any of you are attending the Rencontres d’Arles Photography Festival in France, be sure to catch the new Impossible Exhibition.
The exhibit features experimental works by renowned photographers, many of whom used the Impossible Project’s beta version of their upcoming color instant film.
Just to recap: the Impossible Project is developing new analog instant film for traditional Polaroid cameras. This team, made up of integral film experts and former Polaroid employees, is working in the former Polaroid factory in the Netherlands and reviving an art form well-loved by Polaroid devotees worldwide. You can read about their efforts and successes in this blog post.
When can you get your hands on the new color film? On July 29, 2010, the First Flush edition of Impossible’s new color instant film will be officially presented. You’ll be able to buy it online at the Impossible shop. Till then, if you’re in France and at Arles, swing by the exhibit at Bar de la Roquette, 36, rue de la Roquette. The exhibit runs through July 13. And if you’re at Arles before July 10, stop by the Village and see us, too. The Blurberati will be there and we’d love to talk books and photography with you.
