In 2013 I got my first Polaroid camera, and since then I have been journeying into the world of instant film. From the inception of the Impossible Project to its recent merger, I eagerly followed the rediscovery of the formula for instant film, but was always frowning when I had to trash a battery. When […]
I get easily excited about the little things. Whether it’s a new film stock, a film stock revived from the dead (come on Agfa Vista 400!), a new camera, a newly discovered old camera, or literally anything with the word Mamiya in it, my creativity starts rolling and I get my butt off the couch […]
It’s no secret that for many film photographers, taking photos of their cameras is as enjoyable as making photographs with them. Don’t take my word for it, just take a quick look on social media (and probably your own phone’s camera roll) to confirm it’s the norm rather than the exception. Fine art photographer Kent […]
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=csqQ14YnESY I haven’t had cable TV in a very long time. I cut the cord almost 12 years ago and all of the ads I get now are less than 15 seconds long, skip-able and usually specific to my tastes. The only way to avoid skipping an ad when I was growing up was to […]
A little over 12 years since The Impossible Project’s inception, the company has squared the circle and become the very brand whose products it was created to save.
I’ve been shooting 35mm and medium format film for a quite a while and was never really interested in instant film. But last summer I found out about pack film. It was so different from what I’ve seen before, sharpness and color accuracy – it was all there. Unfortunately, I was too late, the last […]
In January 2006, after 5 or so years of film photography with a combination of cheaper cameras (e.g., a Minolta SRT-101, a Fed-3 and an old Mamiya 35mm), I bought a like-new Nikon FM3A for $429 USD on eBay. Since then it has shot hundreds (if not thousands) of rolls of film, and has accompanied […]
In 1963, the Polaroid Corporation introduced the Automatic 100 Land Camera (also known as the Model 100). Named after Polaroid co-founder and genius inventor Edwin Land, the Land Cameras would go on to be a successful line of cameras for the company, produced in one form or another until the early 2000’s.

Wet plate collodion doesn’t spring to mind as either the most practical or in fact, legal approach to creating passport photographs but that didn’t stop EMULSIVE interviewee #196 Markus Hofstaetter from giving it a shot.
Markus isn’t a stranger
Welcome, welcome, welcome!
I always find it difficult to talk about myself in situations where I know it’s expected of me to present myself and who I am.
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the 178th EMULSIVE interview! Today I have great pleasure in introducing you all to Lisa Toboz.
I shot over 14 portraits with the Polaroid 636 Close-up. I used it in different locations (inside of a white room, outside at 9:00 AM when it was a little bit colder, outside when it started raining.
Houston, Texas, is my hometown. My wife and I recently purchased a renovated 90-year-old home in the city’s urban core, which currently is in the midst of a major revitalization movement.
At some point in 2017, I went through a phase of photographic despondency but developed an interested in alternative, broadly photographic ventures.
I’m so pleased to be able to bring you the words and work of Ioana Tăut, set in the wonderful world of her instant photography.
Over to you, Ioana!
Hi Ioana, what’s this picture, then?
IT: I randomly
January 27th 2016. Let that date burn into your memory. The was the first time today’s interviewee and I first made email contact.
It’s a real pleasure to introduce you all to Rob Hawthorn, a photographer who many of you will remember from his stunning travelogue of Yucatan on Kodak AEROCHROME.
Well Rob’s back with something a little different.
In an act of ultimate consumation, the company that was formed to save what was left of Polaroid Corporation’s dying European infrastructure has now been assimilated into the very brand it sought to help…but the story of how this state
Today’s interviewee doesn’t always share much of his own work on Twitter but take a peek on Instagram or his website and it’s a totally different story.
I’m so happy to be able to bring you the words and pictures
