Vintage camera paintings


My friend and patron Steve Pinter sent me this photo last week. It shows five of the camera paintings hanging in his studio. Steve is a talented photo retoucher and photographer (check out his work at Pinter Creative Studio), so his interest in this series did not surprise me.

The movie camera painting was based on an 8mm camera he bought at a garage sale in Toronto and then gave me as a gift. I reciprocated with this painting, that got me started down this camera road. The View Master, Rollei 35, and Pentax K-1000 were from my recent New Small Paintings show, and the Hasselblad 500cm was commissioned. You can see them all larger below.
