Julian Calverley loves his old cameras. He recently captured their design perfection in a series of memorable photographs with his iPhone. There is something fitting about capturing the beauty of these complex, vintage cameras with something as modern and automated as the iPhone.
Recently, traditionalists were shocked when the New York Times began using images shot with iPhones. They shouldn’t have been offended. What they failed to recognize is that photography never stands still. There is no camera inherently superior to any other. The best photographers stay open-minded to innovation while honoring the fabulous technology that came before. That’s because the most important components required for making amazing images will always be the photographer’s eye and imagination.
