Along with the stories that accompany each camera Michael has produced a series of highly detailed photographs of 20th Century film cameras reflecting his commercial still life work. They are beautifully lit in his studio and then deep etched for printing, to best show the classic design elements of these historic analogue cameras. Isolating the subject on a pure white background gives these iconic cameras the status they deserve.

 

Roll Film is an engaging exploration of classic cameras of the 20th century and their stories. The project came about by accident a couple years prior when photographer, Michael Bradfield was taking some photos of his unused equipment to put on Ebay. Being a still life photographer he couldn't help but make the photos as good as they could be. After over finessing them he realised that the images of the cameras were a wonderful testimony to their characters and the photographs themselves were worthy of consideration.
