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.

Cameras in the workspace: yes.

Hilda Grahnat

Photographs of camera collections: also yes.

How about you? Any ideas for camera display? Please do share.

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?

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!
