Impossible and WestLicht Museum of Photography preserve and lead the International Polaroid Collection into the future. Thanks to the commitment of Impossible, the producer of the new analog instant film material, the Vienna based Museum of Photography WestLicht purchased the International Polaroid Collection. WestLicht takes over 4.400 artworks from 800 artists (from Ansel Adams to Andy Warhol) and will exhibit a fine selection of these iconic images combined with some new contemporary works shot on new Impossible instant film from June 17th, 2011.
