The 1960's saw the rise and popularity of half-frame cameras, a trend that came mainly from Japan thanks to the Olympus pen models. They were very compact and cost-efficient, as each film exposure would have two separate images. Here, photographer Eric Bergeron rediscovers the half-frame.
Bergeron's half-frame camera was a gift from his wife, who always enjoyed giving him old film cameras. The camera used for the photos is a 1960's Olympus Pen EE. It's considered as the amateur model with an automatic exposure and fixed focusing, considered as a true point and shoot camera with a 28mm f/3.5 lens.
The half-frame makes interesting compositions of dichotomy and comparison. Who knows, maybe 2018 might just revive this photographic trend!
