Hula Seventy: Vintage Camera Display


Cori Kindred

As my collection of vintage camera grows, so does my need for interesting display. The above photo is actually a fraction of my personal collection-- as seen (and photographed) by my friend Cori Kindred. Thing is, there's no shortage of good vintage camera display ideas out there. Here's proof:

I'm not going to lie. I think this one is my favorite.

Of course, you really can't go wrong with a mantel display.

And this old medicine cabinet could not be more perfect for this camera collection.

A little color mixed in is always a good thing.

Gotta love these... would I have more money and I would have a whole wall to display them! I spend hours on Etsy looking for them... just to make me drool a little bit!! :)

Wow. I too was looking for a contemporary way of displaying my first old manual camera, that is now a bit tattered around the edges. It served me well and deserves pride of place.
I totally love Tim Melideo Photography's framed idea. Simply lush!
I wonder how he managed to attach the cameras to the wall though?

The third photo down made me laugh. I have the same setup in my house! You can see it in this photo on the left.

Aw, my old school Poloroid is just splayed out on my yellow drink cart under a handprinted sign that reads "drink". I need to examine some decorating options myself!

I've just gone for the "shelf full of crap" approach with mine:
