A special treat at the opening of “Momentum,” the Impossible Project’s latest exhibit, this past evening: I finally met Dr. Florian Kaps, the man who (with his business partner, André Bosman) saved Polaroid’s last instant-film factory from the scrapyard. We had spoken via Skype but never in the flesh. Tonight, we chatted, we joked, we traded Polaroid lore; he gave me a peek at a future product that looks extremely promising. Here’s the man himself. (It’s probably bad form to admit that I shot him on Fuji film, but at least it’s not Instax.)
I also was excited to meet Jessica Reinhardt, whose Polaroid photography I’ve been admiring online for quite awhile. Here she is with Patrick Tobin, who works in marketing and online sales for Impossible and is a really good photographer himself. (Soft focus, I know, I know; group shots are tough with the portrait lens on my Model 180, because DOF is about six inches and someone’s always too far back or too close in.)
