Fuji Instax film offers a vivid contrast to the Impossible Project'slook.


Fuji Instax film offers a vivid contrast to the Impossible Project's look. Fuji's blue fetish is plainly apparent in all of my images.

The Instax cameras are great party cameras: they are fun to use, kids can operate them and see through the large (not especially accurate) viewfinder, and the guest of honor is inevitably thrilled to have a physical souvenir of the event.

The regular Instax spits out business card-sized prints, but I use the wide, which is ginormous. Here are a few prints from a brief break in my work last weekend, with the camera on the "darken" setting to increase contrast & saturation.

The subtle colors of the Impossible Project's instant films are charming and subtle: what I need to learn now is whether these recent releases are stable.

I was (am?) an Impossible Pioneer, which means I purchased the early, experimental films, some of which have faded to nothing. (The loyalty program was invented to thank customers for being willing to take the risk.)

The company's experiments have been interesting, and now I'm hoping the results will also be stable! I'm shooting film this spring to find out.

I adore whoever it was who decided to pose these mannequins like a group of women waiting for a train, rather than line them up in one posture, like robots (or other uniform inanimate objects).
