Vintage Fascination: Cameras

Over the course of the past few years, much to my mother’s chagrin, my family has amassed a small collection of vintage cameras from antique shops, gifts from family and friends, and other unknown origins. Included in this collection are a camera that belonged my mom’s grandma, a camera my dad’s dad bought in Germany, and a camera my dad bought when he wanted to be a photographer (it explains why my dad takes over a thousand photos on our family vacations).

When I was tasked with creating a digital collection based on something I collect, I chose the camera collection. I had been curious about the cameras in it and how old they are since my brother and I got the Polaroid Land Camera Automatic 100 and the Kodak Brownie Flash Six-20 running during summer 2015.

The digital collection can be found at this link and I hope to continue adding cameras to it and maybe other collections, since the platform supports multiple collections.
