Piece description from the artist
This is the Kodak Brownie 8mm Movie Camera II. I found it at a second hand store a couple of years ago in Madison, Wisconsin. I've never shot any film with with it but the mechanism seems to work and, while it is well worn with chipped paint, dents, and scratches on the outside, inside of the camera is quite clean.

Emotion. Mood. Feelings. This is what I capture through my photographs. Whether it is landscapes, architectural elements, still life, or macros – it is a very personal journey as my own fears, triumphs, beliefs, and shortcomings are exposed with each photo.
Much of what I shoot is done spontaneously without preconceived thought or plan. I let what is around me dictate what is photographed.
And the shooting is only the first step – a jumping off point. I take the raw images and create what I see in my mind’s eye. Coaxing out textures present in the shot – sometimes adding them. Enhancing the contrast of light and dark to create the mood and emotions I felt and feel. In the end, it’s all about listening to my heart and mind and creating a visual representation of what I feel the moment the shutter is released.
