“Since the introduction of digital technology, the relationship between camera and photographer has altered dramatically. Speed and accessibility have come at the expense of mystery, intimacy and tactility – qualities exclusive to analogue photography.” – Lu Sisi
Winner of the Best Video award in the Budget Category of the New York TV Program and Film Festival in 2011, Digital Analogue is a two-minute stop motion short film made by Lu Sisi, a Visual Communication graduate from the Glasgow School of Art.
The video was created by meticulously stitching together over six thousand still photos of various vintage cameras and photography equipment, and is set to a track that is a composite of recorded sounds made by analogue cameras. The result is an eye-catching and wonderful mashup of the past and the present.

By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.

For this series, she used the Daguerreotype Achromat Art Lens and she's telling us the story of a woman who is waiting for someone or something in her small theater and who decides to venture to the morning mist. “It is the uncertainty that charms one.
