For the first time in two decades, a new camera has been created that uses the original Polaroid film. The I-1 instant camera exists due to the efforts of the Impossible Project, which has continued to produce self-developing film after Polaroid discontinued production of both the film and cameras nearly a decade ago.

In support of the project, various artists have joined forces for Project 8 which celebrates the new camera. Included in the launch is Jack White, whose pictures capture everything from still life to celebrity friends like Mick Jagger. "Photography using mechanical means is a beautiful art form," White said in a statement. "Digital pictures are very portable and easy to make happen, but you can't hold the photo in your hand, or put it in a family album. There's a romantic feeling of pulling a photograph out of a polaroid camera, holding it your hands and showing it to others. It can't be replaced or replicated."
