Like Kodak’s invention, the Brownie was the family camera for family snaps; super 8 is synonymous with home movies. Launched in 1965 by Eastman Kodak the film came in a pre-loaded cartridge with 2 ½ minutes worth of footage. Kodachrome was the first true colour film for both stills and movies that sadly, since 2011 is no longer able to be processed.
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.
