I am one of the founders of Impossible, the project that saved the last Polaroid production plant for integral instant film and started to invent and produce totally new instant film materials for traditional Polaroid cameras. After succeeding in creating a new monochrome film, we moved onwards to a new color integral instant film, probably one of the most complex photo systems imaginable.

It was a tough way towards color, with test film that did not show much color tones, but we never gave up. When I re-ceived one of the latest promising color instant film test packs, I pointed my Polaroid camera at my son Valentin — for the first real Impossible color image.
