For Love or for Business? (Polaroid Film)

You may of heard that this year, Polaroid will be selling it’s final stock of instant-photo goodness.

I’ve never had polaroid camera but there seems something nostalgic about them still!

But here is the news, the Polaroid film is already making a coming back?

The Impossible Project is an idea by’s Florian Kaps has recently signed a 10-year le

ase on the original Polaroid factory in the Netherlands, and plans to start producing polaroid film again as soon as the old stuff runs out.

Visit the wesbite and you’ll see more. And with the thousands of fans of Polaroid, I think Kaps could be onto a good thing. But he was quoted as saying that

“The project is more than a business plan; it’s a fight against the idea that everything has to die when it doesn’t create turnover.”.

Props to him!

Don't undertake a project, unless it is manifestly important and nearly impossible - Edwin Land, inventor of Instant Photography
