8 x 10 Polaroid - The impossible Project

Love photography?

It doesn't get any better than shooting on a large format 8 x 10 camera

The Impossible Project was born when a group of people bought the old Polaroid factory in an attempt to keep instant photography alive

The machines had been dismantled, the supply chain no longer existed and there was no formula to follow

They had to had to reinvent instant film from scratch

Many years later, with the help of incredible chemists, engineers and photographers, they're the only people in the world who make original instant film in both colour and black and white as large format 8 x 10 film

Each film or picture when exposed and processed is a one off, totally unique with its own characteristics

A work of art

To shoot this amazing film you need:

An 8 x 10 camera and an original polaroid processing machine

Shad Thames have a Sinar 8 x 10in camera complete with a range of lens plus an original polaroid processing machine

A crew with the know how to use this equipment can be provided

Get in touch with Shad Thames if you'd like to shoot 8 x10 polaroid!
