I grew up with many different
designs in camera technology. My first camera was a Kodak camera. George Eastman capitalized on the "brownie camera," a camera that traveled with my mother for school events and functions in which we wanted pictures as memories. My entire life I have been around cameras. In my "Camera Folks" series I present cameras as art instead of the photographs the cameras create as art. It is not difficult today to find cameras in antique shops, because everyone seems to have owned various cameras during their lifetime. The shape, the style, the features in cameras become an observation lesson in creating a non-functional yet decorative piece of art.
