For most of the last century, the family camera represented a significant financial outlay and was carefully looked after. Many embodied the best technological advancements of their era. With the advent of digital technology however many were consigned to the attic, the garage or the bin.
Auckland photographer Steve Taylor rescues antique film cameras, restoring them to their former glory and functionality. He has refurbished close to 150 and film tested every one. A selection of Taylor's cameras from the early 20th century to the 1970s will be on display in the ballroom at historic Alberton, with examples of photographs taken with them, revealing the richness and detail of film images.
