While the grand legacy of Eastman Kodak rapidly fades out of view — Santa Barbara designer Roberto Altieri is busy re-purposing vintage photo cameras to serve a more useful role in the modern digital age. His work is driven by a longtime passion for photography and love for exploring old film cameras.
This classic Kodak Brownie Bull's-Eye camera originally introduced in 1954 — has been reimagined to serve as a functional iPhone charging dock. Each upcycled camera is handcrafted and beyond repair for photography purposes before it's converted to become iPhone-friendly.
It's obvious that the work produced by Laboratorio Altieri requires a zeal for vintage beauty along with an inspired imagination for redesign.
Expect to pay $99 for this timeless touch of 1950's photography. Extreme feelings of childlike wonder come free upon delivery.
