Kodak Kodex No. 1
Like every photographer I know I have a shelf full of vintage cameras. I’ve never thought of myself as particularly nostalgic but apparently I have a deep fondness for beautifully crafted cameras.. This Kodak Kodex No. 1 was owned by my Pépe who was an amateur photographer and even had a darkroom setup in the basement. I’m not sure if my love for photography came from my grandfather but, I have this distinct memory of the first time I looked through a twin lens reflex camera of my Pépé’s. Seeing everything flipped around backwards made the world seem more interesting and detailed, it made me slow down and look at the tiny details.
