Polaroid is Back

Polaroid is Back

09_21_17_onestep2_main

Eighty years after Polaroid began and forty years after the release the original Polaroid OneStep, The Impossible Project’s mission to keep Polaroid film alive is finally accomplished with the reveal of Polaroid’s new subbrand Polaroid Originals, and a new OneStep 2 camera.

Did you get that? Polaroid is BACK thanks to the crazy passion of The Impossible Project team and their dedication to keeping Polaroid’s films alive for the past nine years. With blood, sweat, and some tears they pushed instant film forward and many of those team members now call Polaroid home.

What about this new camera?

While the look is reminiscent of the original OneStep, the new version has some modern upgrades like a higher quality lens, a rechargeable battery via USB, a more powerful flash and a self-timer function. OneStep is pre-ordering now in 2 colors for a cool $99.99, with delivery as early as October 16th.

 

What about the film?

With The Impossible Project being absorbed, we’ll all be buying film from Polaroid once again and at a better price. The new OneStep 2 is compatible with all the 600 series films we’ve grown to love like color and black/white, but also the newly developed i-Type (batteryless) film that runs only $15.99 per pack compared to the 600 film at $18.99.

What about the vintage cameras?

One of the coolest things about The Impossible Project was their vintage camera refurbishment program of the 600, Spectre and SX-70 camera models and that’s still here under the Polaroid name again and they have a wide range of old cameras available from $119.00-$609.99 and the films will be available for all them again very soon.

The 8mm Films of Vivian Maier

The 8mm Films of Vivian Maier

The 8mm Films of Vivian Maier on Nowness.com

These small clips from the 1970s show a glimpse into the secret life of Chicago nanny Vivian Maier as she documented the urban life around her in her off time. The Finding Vivian Maier documentary finally debuts today at the Toronto Intl. Film Festival.

We’ve covered info on Maier before, but if she’s unknown to you here’s a rundown. Vivian died in 2009 at the age 83. She spent most of her life as a nanny in Chicago and had a secret passion for photography and film. She never shared it with anyone and had few friends. After winning a bid for 30,000 of Maier’s negatives in a Chicago auction house in 2007, Jon Maloof realized the importance Vivian’s work. “Little by little, I realized that the work was great,” he says. “Maier should wedge right in with the best photographers of her time, such as Robert Frank, Diane Arbus, Lisette Model and Helen Levitt.” Maloof has sent the last few years painstakingly archiving Maier’s work, putting on exhibitions around the world and filming the aforementioned documentary film.

Must-See: Wonderland

To make this must-see documentary short, the crew at Eskimo set out on a month long journey to interview prominent creatives around the country about creativity, relationships, the pursuit of money and self expression. Many of the creatives were really transparent about their struggles and it was refreshing. If you’ve been around the creative industry for while you’ll agree with most of what they’re talking about and hopefully you’ll be inspired to always be creating for yourself.
