    Olympic Portraits Shot Using Century-Old Petzval Lens

    These portraits by L.A. Times photographer Jay L. Clendenin are interesting not just because they were shot using a large-format film camera outfitted with antique doublet lenses (possibly from 1840!), but also because he juxtaposed them with his colored digital captures. Which do you like better: old or new?
