PRYME Editions has launched our debut Annual Photography Journal dedicated to instant film on Kickstarter! This project is being launched on the belief that photographs, especially instant ones, should be seen in print as well as on screen. It will be the first annual journal of its kind and will feature 170+ pages of the magical medium of Instant Photography.

We are proud to to share with you that we already have an all-star line up from the instant photography world that includes: Brian Henry, an experimental art photographer and explorer of urban decay; Daniel Stein, the first instant film astrophotographer; Walter Sans, famous for his 2010 Netherlands Pink Ribbon campaign shot on expired Polaroid chocolate film; Matt Smith, an internationally known surf culture documentary photographer; Herr Merzi, an artistic explorer of nude portraiture shot on expired film; and Bastian Kalous, the current king of the instant film world, among many others.

This project, titled the PRYME Editions: The 2017 Annual Journalwill launch as a Kickstarter campaign on June 20th, 2017 with the goal of raising $6,500.00 USD to print 200+ high quality copies of this publication. We will offer four different backer levels for this campaign that include:
