[Discussion] A Whole New Camera: Are Our Cameras Outmoded?

[Discussion] A Whole New Camera: Are Our Cameras Outmoded? Designer Jean-michel Bonnemoy believes that a traditional camera’s design is dictated by the need to hold a roll of film in the back.

Human interactions have always been our source of inspiration. We used to get very close to people but now, we appreciate a certain distance. Before coming to photography, Stephanie was a...
