If you stop by here or my Instagram regularly you know that I’m a vintage lover/hunter/obsessed/hoarder. Today I’m so happy to share with you a photo series I did with my talented photographer friend Maya Visnyei that showcases a small selection of one of my favourite vintage collections, my cameras. When it comes to collecting I don’t take it seriously at all. I couldn’t tell you the value or history of any of my cameras, I just collect what I like and what I think looks great together. I also have a closet full of vintage dresses and thought some of them made the perfect backdrop for the cameras and a fun and bold photo series overall. All these cameras were collected from flea markets and garage sales. Never pass by a garage sale without taking a look!
Which one is your favourite combo? It’s too hard for me to choose. Do you have any collections? Feel free to share below what you collect and why you love them so much. You should consider getting creative with them and make your own little series. I always seem to like things better in groups, don’t you agree? One vintage camera is ok, but a group of cameras is so lovely.
Stay tuned in the next few weeks to see how I used these photos for a project in my space.
