Since the very start of the Impossible Project, Urban Outfitters has joined and supported the mission of carrying analog instant photography into the 21st century. Having already made exclusive Instant Photography Kits available to young audiences and presented various Polaroid exhibitions, Urban Outfitters is now for the first time collaborating with Impossible at their NYC Project Space in a carefully curated selection of instant artworks by contemporary photographers Claire Oring and Foster Huntington. Both The Impossible Project and Urban Outfitters are proud to present the first of many collaborations with an exhibition on display and open to the public at the Impossible Project Space NYC from December 15, 2010 - January 11, 2011.
Both artists have been working with the latest Impossible film materials to create a unique assembly of stories. Diverse in style and subject, the artists’ separate but complimentary visions showcase the distinct and ever-adapting qualities of Impossible films.

Claire Oring is a Los Angeles based artist who focuses on the interplay between the concepts of magic, sisterhood, nature and the unexpected results of their combination. Through photographing outdoors, Oring depicts the landscape as a character is its own right, drawing a mystical personality to the characters in her images.
Foster Huntington is a vagabond at heart whose work touches upon the beauty of the outdoors and subtle details of life on the road. Traveling nearly year round in an antique Volkswagen van, Huntington's lifestyle is effortlessly illustrated through his depictions of bliss and youth.
