The Camera Collection

2012-05-02 15

How’s this for pretty photographic pixels? A team of three artists have collaborated to produce this insanely perky video of the most popular cameras over the years. Guess how many Lomography cameras made it to the cut by watching the video below!

The Camera Collection is an art collaboration between illustrator Bill Brown, animator Antonio Vicentini, and musician Ben Hantoot. The video is an adorable tribute to both analogue and digital photography, with pixel transformations from classic cameras to our very own Lomographic choices to even storage options like film and SD cards!

Did you spot the Lomography cameras in the video? Brown created 100 pixelated camera illustrations under the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License which means you can do absolutely anything with the graphics as long as you properly credit the artist! Super sweet.

So cute and kitschy! Reminds you of these Lomographic Posters too, don’t they?

About using pixel art, Brown says he was influenced by the video games of the 90s. “Since my gaming purge in 2005, pixelated images have always carried a certain nostalgia and beauty for me.”

    This video is so awesome, and I gotta say, I got a little sad when the analogue cameras started changing into digital cameras...
