It is not always easy to figure out which cameras to photograph and feature on here. Have you been in our shop and seen all the cameras we have to choose from? We'd be posting ten times a day and it would still take us months to get through them all. Nonetheless, we took one look at this Wirgin Edinex and had to get a portrait of it. Part of the reason is because we have never photographed one for our feed before, but the larger part is because the Edinex has an understated beauty and elegance to its design. The camera body has curiously rounded edges that give the fingers nice grips to hold onto. The black leatherette and nickel trim go so well together, as they always do. And of course the camera carries that Old World charm like so many of its other contemporaries. ⠀
The Edinex comes from the German Wirgin company, a camera company founded by four Polish brothers in the 1920s. The family fled Germany in the 1930's to escape persecution and their company was confiscated and produced cameras under the Adox name until after the war when the Wirgin family returned and resumed control. This Edinex is the second version of the original model, made post-WWII. There are several variations of these cameras out there. This particular one has Wirgin branded Gewironar 5cm f4.5 lens set in a Prontor-S shutter.
This is all of the gear I will have for a week in Venice: one camera, one lens, 5 rolls of color film, 5 rolls of black & white film, sunny 16 rule for exposure metering. Let’s do this 😅

알고는 있다 잊혀지는 것들을 주머니에 담아두었지만
나의 눈은 쌓여있던 모든 것들이 지워져 나갈 것을 알고 있다
계산기처럼 굴러가는 동공을 뽑아버리지 않으면 안돼 썩어버린 눈의 뿌리를 물어뜯지 못하면 분명
독을 가득 품은 꽃봉우리가 태어날 텐데
나의 손은 흙이 되어 단단하게 굳어버리고 그 위에 수많은 꽃이 펴있다 비가 오면 꽃도 잔디도 흙탕물에 뒹굴고 말텐데
말을 이어가지 못한다
그래 독에 젖어버린 거야
꽃봉우리가 터져버리고 만거야 (2015)
