The Impossible Project

Impossible’s journey began in 2008, when André Bosman and Florian ‘Doc’ Kaps purchased the last factory in the world manufacturing Polaroid instant film.

This simple act of passion and a belief in an impossible dream saved analog instant photography from extinction, and rescued over 200 million Polaroid instant cameras from becoming utterly useless. Now, from Impossible’s creative headquarters in Berlin, Germany, a new generation of passionate instant photography aficionados are intent on creating the future of analog instant photography, making the seemingly impossible possible.
