BERLIN & I | INSTANT PHOTOGRPHY AND MICROWAVE MAGIC



INSTANT PHOTOGRAPHY AND MICROWAVE MAGIC

-------------------------------------------------


Joining this perfect match is Berlin-based analogue photographer, Oliver Blohm , whose photography comes with a bit of a twist. His project, ‘The Impossible Nuke’, is put together specially for this collaboration, and will hang in the Sofortbild-Shop until 15th March – it’s definitely worth a look. At first glance, Blohm’s photos don’t reveal much about their process: it’s mostly individual portraiture, with a beautiful ethereal texture to it. At the vernissage on Thursday, though, we learn the key to the process: an old microwave. As members of the Impossible team mingle and take Polaroids of visitors, Blohm takes the freshly developing pictures and begins zapping them in an old microwave he’s brought along. “The process is very… experimental,” he says, staring intently into the microwave as a pungent smoke begins to emerge. Initially a failed attempt to shorten the photos’ developing time, the method has become a signature one for the photographer, though the results (tonight at least) are a bit hit and miss. Our own ‘nuked’ photo has (for better or for worse) ended up nuking our faces away. The patience and persistence behind Blohm’s beautiful blown-up ‘nukes’ already hanging on the wall becomes evident.

A.MUSE | PHOTOGRAPHY WITH SOUL



PHOTOGRAPHY WITH SOUL – THE IMPOSSIBLE
SAVES POLAROIDS FROM OBSOLETION

-------------------------------------------------


The new Partner Store, which joined forces with analogue camera experts Jörn and Simone Freitag at Sofortbild Shop Berlin , is celebrating its opening with a photo exhibition by Berlin-based photographer Oliver Blohm , whose series "The Impossible Nuke" has a transcendent and mystical quality achieved by speeding up the developing of the film in a microwave (made possible, of course, through the new non-toxic instant film). At the opening event , visitors were encouraged to try nuking their own photographs. For those who missed out, the exhibition will be on view at the store until March 2014. Keeping analogue creativity alive, the store will continue to host events in the future – from hands-on workshops to exhibitions showcasing international talent.

RECAP: THE IMPOSSIBLE STORE BERLIN OPENING!

Oliver Blohm, a long time friend of Sofortbild-Shop Berlin and Impossible showed off some of his extraordinary instant photography work for the first time in the exhibition entitled ‘The Impossible Nuke’. Displaying some of Blohm’s Impossible instant photographs which have undergone a very special microwave session, guests also had the chance to take and ‘nuke’ their own shots. For all those who couldn’t join us for the opening there is still a chance to check out the exhibition until the middle of March.

C ♥ HEADS | IMPOSSIBLE PARTNER STROE OPENING IN BERLIN



IMPOSSIBLE PARTNER STROE OPENING IN BERLIN

-------------------------------------------------

I had the pleasure of checking out the Impossible Project’s grand opening in Berlin’s trendy Mitte district last night. Located on Mulackstr. in the small yet cozy Sofortbild space, I felt an immediate sense of welcome as a group of lovely ladies wearing Impossible t-shirts greeted me with big smiles and offered me a bubbly of my choice. The venue space was small, intimate, and not to mention, the aesthetic was oh-so Berlin: edgy, authentic, fresh, bold yet totally lacked pretention.

…clearly, this is the formula for, as the Black Eyed Peas would say, “tonight’s gonna be a good night” …and it was.

GET TO KNOW: OLIVER BLOHM

-------------------------------------------------

Many people label themselves as “experimental” without really delving into new areas. Oliver Blohm, however, certainly deserves the title; the Berlin-based photographer puts Polaroids in his microwave.
