02 Apr Welcome to Nikon-Film Vintage Collection
Once upon a time, but not too long ago, computers breathed, ate, slept … and made pictures. Computers were people. People that, when working with film, love the mystery of not being able to immediately see what the image will look like —and just hope to capture that fleeting moment.
People that must take decisions having a considerable impact on the result of their task. Even the possible error was one more statement that a person was there, behind a machine, entirely defining the moment.
At Nikon-Film we work for this kind of Photographers and, as in that era, we focus on quality vintage equipment for those of you who are ditching their smartphones or DSLR cameras in favour of old-fashioned shooting.
When I was a younger man, photography was a lonely thing. No galleries, no collectors, no money. Yet, it was a golden age, for we all had nothing to lose and a vision to gain.
Time passed and the passion for Nikon, in some chaotic fashion, grew up. As many others, probably out of something that I might call metaphysical angst, perhaps because I cannot bear the idea of chaos being the one ruler of the universe, I attempt to impose some order on the world, and for a short while I manage it, filling my time, or what I believe to be my spare time, by collecting Nikon film items.
At Nikon-Film we also serve Collectors because the day comes when a collection must be dispersed (that day always comes) and everything goes back to its beginnings, everything returns to chaos.
