Camera Typology

The projects I do with my students always influences my own thoughts in term time. This week they have started their first second year brief which is looking at the work of the Bechers and the Dusseldorf School, thinking about and then making their own typologies. This is the systematic collection and classification of the world around us through a disciplined use of photography. In other words making photographic sets of "things that are the same but different", as one of them put it.

Here is a little set of cameras that I made a year or so ago as part of a group project that has sat forgotten on my hard drive and needs an airing. If you'd like to see some other typologies I've made, follow these links:
