This will be the first Impossible Project Store in the USA, exclusively dedicated to special products and unique artworks of analog instant photography. Further Impossible Project Stores are located in Vienna (Austria) and Berlin (Germany).
In the spacious 5th floor loft of a SoHo landmark building, Impossible will not only offer the last stock of original Polaroid films and cameras, but also the brand new Impossible film materials: PX 100 and PX 600 Silver Shade.
