fairytale project - the magic camera


Edward, an English poet from a small city in the midlands finds the most beautiful antique camera at a vintage fair on a sunny sunday afternoon. He takes the most breath taking photographs when he travels the world, these pictures shine like diamonds, the clarity is surreal. When Edward arrives back in England he decided to build a darkroom after watching a BBC documentary about the history of the pocket ensign camera. After a lot of struggling Edward manages to develop his stunning photographs in the solution he lovingly mixed himself, he clips his processed pictures on the line to dry with some old pegs. After a long bath, a cup of tea and his trusty company with the local evening newspaper, Edward decided it's time to head to bed and he anticipates the the morning. The photographs come to life, and just like smoke the photographs drift through the air and enter Edward's brain and create the most vivid and exciting dreams, in this dream he falls in love with a beautiful girl named Patricia and they end up getting married in the south of France where they grow old together. The camera is still in use till this day, but one thing has changed, there are now beautiful photographs of Edward and Patricia hand in hand and delicately placed on their mantlepiece.
