The Polaroid SX-70 is one of the most famous cameras of all time — a folding single lens reflex (SLR) instant camera that fits almost anywhere (including a coat pocket). It was revolutionary when launched in 1972 and still impresses people today.
These iconic instant SLRs — the original SX-70, autofocus ‘Sonar’ edition, the later SLR680, and the newly remanufactured MiNT SLR670M/S — can still be used thanks to new colour and B&W film stocks produced by The Impossible Project.
Whether you are a current owner who wants to get the most from your camera or you just want a hands-on introduction to what makes these SLR cameras so special, please join us for a Polaroid SLR Camera Workshop with photographer Dan Rubin.
The workshop will cover the history of Polaroid SLRs including SX-70, SX-70 Sonar, SLR680 and the MiNT SLR670M/S, the history of The Impossible Project, Dan’s love affair with the SX-70, setting up the camera, a shooting session with Polaroid SLR cameras and a discussion of the photographs taken. A selection of Polaroid SLR cameras will be available to use with free film from Impossible and attendees can also bring their own SLR-style Polaroid cameras.
Plus there will be special offers in the Bookshop for all attendees.
Born in Miami Beach and now based in London, Dan is a designer, photographer, art director, and co-founder / editor-at-large of The Photographic Journal. After being introduced to the world of photography through a Polaroid SX-70, his work takes him on many adventures around the world where he captures his journey via various photographic mediums – including Impossible instant films.
