RAW YET BEAUTIFUL

Simple concept - Stunning Images

A camera obscura (Latin: "dark chamber") is an optical device that led to photography and the photographic camera. The device consists of a box or room with a hole in one side. Light from an external scene passes through the hole and strikes a surface inside, where it is reproduced, rotated 180 degrees (thus upside-down), but with color and perspective preserved.  The Nopo 120  medium-format model dedicated to 120 mm films are handcrafted in Madrid Spain and made of walnut, cherry and birch wood.

THE STORY

From brownie to pinhole

For many of us (those born prior to 1990) we grew up with film cameras, drop off or mail order "snap shots."  Our photo albums are hardcopy not stored digitally or in the cloud and we could touch, feel and experience the memories we captured in film and onto photo paper.  Our refrigerators where our photo wall.

With the movement to digital capture, instant digital point and shoot as well as the big brother DSLR the film process disappeared and so did Kodak.  

Film, processing and darkrooms are still alive and have a place in our lives.  As vinyl records are making a very slow comeback so is analog photography.  

Join us in our journey of Captured Memories.
