Welcome to my instant images!

 

Nothing is impossible! Polaroid is still alive, although the production of the original films was terminated in 2008. Polaroid is like a virus, and I'm infected. With the new Impossible films, taking pictures is more exciting, miraculous and unpredictable than ever.

Taking polaroid photos has become a passion, and even if I can't take a picture every day, I think of doing it. I try to carry a camera with me as often as possible, and I love to share the results.

That's what this site is about – enjoy!
