New55 film has a new website!
New55 FILM “PN” is a reinvention of Polaroid’s beloved type 55 professional instant 4 × 5 black and white positive-negative film. This instant, large-format monochrome film possesses the scale, acutance and refinement of the very best of analog while retaining some of the convenience and immediacy of digital.
New55 FILM’s arrival reflects the human urge to make marks with light using the most responsive materials, and its rediscovery can sponsor reinvestment in new light-sensitive materials with promising adjacencies — including color-instant and direct-positive large format films.
