IMPOSSIBLE PROJECT SPACE NYC presents:

8X10 PORTRAIT DAY

ONGOING MONTHLY

NEW YORK April 19, 2013 – Large format portraits have been revived in a new inventive way with Impossible’s PQ Silver Shade8X10 Instant film. Since the introduction of this unique format in August of 2012, the film has been used by numerous professionals to test its limits.

These portraits are a true analog gem providing each customer with a singular moment normally only accessible in a large studio setting. The opportunity to get a one-of-a-kind portrait taken with the film at the Impossible NYC Space is now available every month. The image will be shot by one of Impossible’s experienced staff photographers using a natural light setting and a beautiful large format camera. Whether you bring a friend or come alone, it is sure to be a great experience for everyone.

Those who attend receive their original instant photo and the unique experience of being in front of one of these amazing large format cameras. These grand and commemorative portraits capture friends, lovers, families and individuals in exquisite sharp detail, depth, and texture using ImpossiblePQ Silver Shade 8×10 film.

The portrait sessions will be held weekends monthly at $40 each frame.

" The camera is much more than a recording apparatus. It is a medium via which messages reach us from another world." - Orson Welles

 

"Some people's photography is an art. Not mine. Art is a dirty word in photography. All this fine art crap is killing it already." - Helmut Newton

"The first 10 000 shots are the worst." - Helmut Newton

 

“If I have any ‘message’ worth giving to a beginner it is that there are no short cuts in photography.” – Edward Weston

 

"Men often become what they believe themselves to be. If I believe I cannot do something, it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe I can, then I acquire the ability to do it even if I didn't have it in the beginning." - Mahatma Gandhi

 

"Ultimately success or failure in photographing people depends on the photographer's ability to understand his fellow man." - Edward Weston

"Avedon claims to have been the best photographer in the '60s - bullshit - Bob Richardson was - despite or because of being insane and strung out on drugs, I managed to do photographs that are considered iconic - being known as the 'photographer's photographer' means I lead and they follow - I'm broke and they are rich." - Bob Richardson

 

"If you're absent during my struggle, don't expect to be present during my success" - Will Smith

 

"Either take the lead or follow behind, just stay the fuck out of my way." - James Sullivan
