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.

The Impossible Collection follows in the footsteps of the world-famous Polaroid Collection and features work created on Impossible's new film materials from an eclectic mix of international artists.

The current exhibition features works from artists like Grant Hamilton, Jake Chessum, Laura Watt, Heather Champ, and more than 20 others. To celebrate the opening of the Impossible's Broadway Space and the magic of instant photography we will be offering weekly in-store-only specials through the end of May.

Also, guests at the Grand Opening Party will enjoy free wine from City Winery, have the chance to have their photos taken with our new PX100 and PX600 films - and be entered to win a fantastic prize package with 5 packs of PX600 film, a Polaroid One600 camera kit and a limited Freitag bag!
