A Poster That Shows 100 Groundbreaking Cameras in the History of Photography

A neat piece of photo-related home (or studio) decor: Brooklyn-based poster printer Pop Chart Lab has created a beautiful new poster called “A Visual Compendium of Cameras” that offers a brief visual history of photography.

The company researched the history of photography and picked out 100 landmark cameras that made a splash on the industry — both professional and consumer cameras.

They then created pixel art illustrations showing the front of each of these cameras, and put them in chronological order to trace “photography’s history from the first models to today’s digital wonders.”

Here’s a closer look at what this poster and its illustrations look like up close. This screenshot is of the upper left hand corner, which shows early cameras (it starts off in 1888 with a Kodak camera):

This screenshot shows the bottom right hand corner, which has a bunch of modern cameras (including an iPhone):

Each print measures 18-inches by 24-inches, is created using 100lb archival recycled stock and vegetable-based inks, and is signed by the artists who created the illustrations.

The first printing will be for 500 posters and will go up for sale on April 26, 2013. You can preorder one now over on the Pop Chart Lab website for $ 22. You can also order a framed version of the poster for $ 107.
