The Story of a Box Camera
Ravneet Oberoi / 0:03:31 / India / Documentary / 2020
This film is a candid conversation with Tikam Chand, a passionate photographer from India who uses his ancestoral 160 year old box camera to take portraits of people on the streets of Jaipur. The film shows the ancient technique of photography on a photo paper. Fun fact: this was the 'digital camera' of 1860’s.
