POLAROID IS DEAD! long live polaroid!

The last batch of Polaroid film to be made expires this month, but all is not lost. Like good cheese there's a lot to be said for letting it age a little. In return you'll recieve some unexpected visually tasty treats, and when stocks finally do run out it doesn't look like we'll have to wait too long for the hole to be filled. ‘The Impossible Project’ aims to be producing their own contemporary take on the film by 2010. Check out http://www.the-impossible-project.com/ for more details.

And finally, to see some of the great and the good of photography's use of the medium you can check out the
Atlas Gallery's latest show 'Polaroid: EXP.09.10.09' featuring work by Walker Evans, Andre Kertesz and Andy Warhol. Its a small but interesting collection of work.
