John Copeland

I was introduced to John Copeland’s work a few years ago when I bought a great book called Drawing From Life: The Journal As Art.

I visited his site this week, and I was surprised to see how different his recent work is compared to his work from a few years ago. It’s still pretty dark.

SLO is a 35mm camera created by 3D designer Amos Dudley, every part of which is 3D printed, including the lenses (although those took about 5 – 6 hours to be sanded down by hand). Designed with a modular lens and shutter system, the lenses can be swapped in/out and longer exposure photos achieved using the shutter buttons along the top. More images of SLO below! You can also check out Dudley’s blog here, where he documented the entire project.
