Spy vs Spy
Spy vs Spy
If you were a post WWII Cold War Spy you wouldn’t be without a Minox camera. It was originally conceived as an inexpensive small camera, in Germany back in 1922 but failed the low cost characteristic. Instead of being the cheap camera everyone could afford, it became the cool little camera that everyone wanted. It’s reputation as a spy camera made it desirable. This Minox 35 with its signature retractable lens cover was the smallest camera on the market that would take 35mm film in the 1970s.
Michael Bradfield 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. All the wear and tear of these cameras are celebrated with revealing lighting. Isolating the subject on a pure white background gives these iconic cameras the status they deserve.
