Sam Hiser and the Artful Innovation of New55 Film (217)

Sam Hiser tells the New55 film story, and shares his thoughts on the art of photography today.

Sam - CEO and co-founder of New55 Holdings, along with co-founder and inventor/innovator extraordinaire Bob Crowley - are on a mission to bring back the essence of Polaroid Type 55 to fine art photographers. New55PN is not a duplication, but rather, an innovative new product that brings back the thrill of producing photographic results unlike anything else seen in analog or digital photography.
