Vintage Cameras


Her Name Is Iris by Jo Bradford (More info here)
I have a growing collection of vintage box cameras and all sorts of other antique camera paraphernalia which I like to play with. I pick up photography related junk on an almost weekly basis, it often gravitates to me by way of family members and acquaintances after they have cleared out their attic, or an old shed - and I am a happy recipient!!


I while away many happy hours in my studio restoring and adapting these treasures to apply to my creative process. And I always enjoy the puzzled looks I get from passers by when I go out in public with my strange contraptions to make new pictures.
