Author: Graphic artist Adrian Johnson's Basilicas prints are bold and colourful representations of nine classic cameras
Graphic artist Adrian Johnson has created a series of bold, colourful prints designed to celebrate the form and function of nine classic cameras.
On show from today at the Kemistry Gallery in Shoreditch, Adrian's Basilicas series includes illustrated representations of cameras by Leica, Hasselblad, Rolleiflex, Mamiya, Olympus, Linhof and Polaroid. Each camera is depicted through the use of the same colour palette, which consists of nine colours.
The aim of the prints is to appreciate the way the cameras themselves look, rather than just what we can achieve by looking through them. Find out more about the colour palette and the composition of the prints on the next slide.
You can see Adrian's Basilicas print series at the Kemistry Gallery until 27 July, where you'll also be able to pre-order a print if you would like to buy one. From 1 August, you'll be able to buy the prints here.
