Film Camera

As a keen photographer, this painting is very special to me. During the late 80s and early 90s, I was lucky enough to have an Olympus OM10. With no money and only 12 shots, photography was a real luxury. I would spend ages looking through the pentaprism to compose that one moment in time, hoping for a good shot. The tactile control of the buttons and lens, gave me a feeling of connection to my photographs that I do not experience with modern automated cameras. What is wonderful is that I now have boxes of photographs from this time which I love to look back on. You can appreciate each shot so much more when you can hold them in your hand, rather than viewing them on a screen.

To emulate the tactile nature of the film camera, I built up a dynamic surface texture with layers of paint and exposed areas of aluminium to depict the boxy structure of the camera.
