CR commissioned designer and imagemaker Trevor Jackson to create a series of images using a digital SLR. The commission was for a project that was unfortunately cancelled but we thought you’d like to see one of the results anyway. In creating the images, Jackson says that he became “increasingly fascinated with the flash reflections appearing in the camera’s lenses. The images were captured effortlessly in a matter of minutes, almost by accident, the camera ended up taking intimate portraits of itself.” More on our forthcoming iPad app.
