Yes, Photoshop and Instagram now allow us to make digital photos look old and sun-faded, but to the discerning photographer – and admirer of vintage photography – there’s just something inauthentic and unsatisfying about doctoring up digital photos to make them look old school. It begs the question of whether analogue and digital photography are even reconcilable in 2012. New York-based impossible decided that those of us who inhabit the digital age while looking back nostalgically at our Polaroids should be able to make legitimate analogue prints of iPhone photos, and they’ve developed a prototype that does exactly that. The clever device is compact enough to fit in your back pocket when not in use, and expands into a miniature dark room when deployed. It contains a smart phone dock, allowing you to snap and instantly print true, old school photos of the digital files on your phone. This irresistible project is currently seeking support via their kickstarter campaign.
