Montréal photographer Marc Aubry has produced a 17-year series of self-portraits that also documents the first two decades of mainstream digital photography. Aubry was an early adopter of digital cameras, and in 1991 he bought the very first commercially available digital SLR: the 1.3-megapixel Kodak/Nikon DCS 100. He took a picture of himself with the camera, and continued the tradition with each new camera he bought until the Panasonic Lumix G1 in 2008. The images are a fascinating history of the changes that digital cameras have undergone since their introduction and it’s interesting to see some of the long forgotten modesl. Does anyone remember the Agfa Actioncam?
You can view all of the images in Aubry’s Flickr set entitled Ma Collection de Reflex Numérique.
