Photography enthusiast Jason Dorn of Calgary, Alberta, has been creating a series of illustrations of well-known vintage film cameras. The artworks show the forms of iconic cameras in front of simple, colored backgrounds.

“I basically started doing these graphics up after purchasing a Yashica rangefinder on eBay and thinking “Man. That has some great shapes to it, I wonder how it would look as a vector graphic.’ and it’s snowballed from there,” Dorn tells PetaPixel.

“So many of those old film cameras just have a lot of great geometric/boxy shapes to em, they translate really well into a flat graphic format.”

He’s also selling the illustrations on various products over at Society6, from art prints to T-shirts to phone cases.
