Photographica Fair 2015

26 April 2015

Region: London

If I’m honest, when I say I am passionate about photography, I don’t always mean taking photographs.  A lot of my passion derives from “photographic shopping”. Now I’m not talking about hi-tech shopping and forever changing my gear for the latest model (I’ve changed my main camera once since I discovered photography and that was only because my first one developed a major fault), but rather mooching around second-hand shops for old books and old cameras. 

There is something deliciously satisfying about raking through shelves of books or boxes of stuff and unearthing a real gem – indeed, yesterday not only did I find a cheap copy of The Urethra Postcard Art of Gilbert and George, but it was signed!

I now have quite a collection of old cameras, which I enjoy using.  I don’t know if it’s my imagination, but there’s a certain something about the images they produce.

So on Sunday 17th May, I shall be making my way to the Photographica Fair to seek out something unusual – I’m already salivating at the words ‘brass’ and ‘mahogany’...

After all, a girl can never have too many cameras, can she?

Sounds a good day out, it may be hard to keep your hands out of your purse.

Photographica is a great place to get film cameras, film and collectible cameras from mahogany and brass through to Leica, plus books and accessories. Well worth a visit.
