I love this particular shot because it feels like a true relic of turn-of-the-century photography. By the late 1890s, the Eastman Kodak company had sold roughly 1.5 million cameras to consumers. During this period, photography became an increasingly accessible hobby and anyone could snap casual photos with family and friends. Something about that era still resonates today, at a moment when the ubiquity of smartphones makes it easier than ever to build a collection of silly, throwaway snapshots. This throwback to the early years of camera saturation is brought to us by Fred Bodin, an avid collector and photographer who was active in New England until his death in 2016.
