Episode 39: David Bias, American vice president of The Impossible Project, calls from New York to explain how his company saved the last instant film factory after Polaroid’s 2008 announcement that it would discontinue production, preserving this analog medium so that artists can experiment and enjoy it for years to come. Bias will deliver a presentation at King Plow Arts Center this Friday, October 14, 2011, 7-9PM, (click here for more info on the talk) as part of a collaboration between Atlanta Celebrates Photography and Jennifer Schwartz Gallery. He also will appear at 2PM this Saturday to give an instant film demonstration to coincide with the opening of Instant Gratification: From Polaroid to Impossible.
