Just the beginning?

Not long left to see the current Photographers' Gallery Bookshop exhibition Polaroid Project showing until the end of January. 

The last instant film manufactured by Polaroid was produced in 2008, with an expiry date of October 2009. To mark its passing national newspaper The Observer gave eight leading contemporary photographers Polaroid film and cameras for a day - Harry Borden (bottom image), Nan Goldin, Tom Hunter, Mary McCartney, Martin Parr, Rankin, Lord Snowdon and Sam Taylor-Wood (top image).

However, The Impossible Project – a group of dedicated Polaroid enthusiasts – plan to manufacture new Polaroid format film in early 2010. As a result, Polaroid will begin to manufacture its instant cameras again. Yipee!

ps. iPhone app Camera Bag has some great filters including a Polaroid one to comfort you while you wait for more film.

Good Grief Charlie Brown!


There must be millions of people all over the world 
who never get any love letters… 
I could be their leader.
