We’ve talked plenty over here about the New55 Project, Bob Crowley’s extremely promising attempt to reintroduce, and improve upon, Polaroid’s Type 55 positive/negative instant film. But I was floored to see (via the 20×24 Studio) this set of photos, for which a Flickr user named julsdylan has made his (or her?) own pos-neg film.
Well. He calls it “55 like,” and although the results are pretty crude and experimental, this speaks pretty loudly about the love for instant-photo materials. Seriously–if suddenly you couldn’t get some familiar consumer product like a cell phone or a car, would you take it upon yourself to build your own? This person did. Amazing. Hats off.
