My name is Giulia but you can call me just Yun, it became my nickname a long time ago and Internet knows me that way. Writing from Rome, Italy, right now I am attending my third and last year of Graphic Design at the Rome University of Fine Arts. During these three years I discovered photography and I just fell in love with the whole world it is, I bought a Canon 500D and though I am still learning how to use it properly, I can say I am making little progress. But let’s stop talking about me.
So today I’d like to talk about photography but in the opposite direction: we usually always see what a camera is seeing, the result of the photography process, what the artist wants us to see. Instead, I want to share with you some pictures of the little but powerful (and cute) monsters that let us capture all the good moments of our lives: the cameras themselves. I always thought digital but mostly analogic cameras are very fascinating and really great subjects; so, I wanna guide you through some photographs I like a lot that show us what’s behind every picture.

I discovered the following picture yesterday and I must say I really like the fact that the camera looks like a person, it’s the real and living subject of the shot.
Simple pictures like these can still tell a lot about the photographer, about what he/she’s going through, if he/she is happy with his/her life or if, like in this case, she needs some support! Because the grass is green, the sky is blue and everything’s cool.
Sometimes photography is related to food, like in this funny funny picture by Keli. Her Kodak is a Brownie Bullet Camera and she put it together with its friends chocolate Brownies (they look delicious, don’t they?).
And there are other times, when cameras BECOME food. Like in this wonderful picture by fsumaria. She is so in love with photography that her lovely husband (I want one like him one day!) gave her a Nikon-cake for her birthday. Amazing.
Actually these last pictures made me hungry, very hungry and I think I am SO heading to my fridge. I invite you all to follow these great artists out there, Flickr is such a cool place to meet them all! And if you still haven’t, take a picture of your camera: she’s the one letting you capture the world around you :)
