Cameras are often viewed as a tool for capturing memories. But a camera itself can also be filled with memories and sentimental value. Whether it was your first SLR or the camera you captured your favorite image with, cameras can hold just as many memories as the medium you capture the images on.
Purchased in 1970, the camera was always by Sanderson’s side. In an article in the Jun 13th issue of Amateur Photographer, Sanderson said:
‘When I went to college to study photography, I bought a Pentax SP500 35mm camera that I carried around everywhere. I loved it and I owe so many of my favourite images to this camera […] I shot hundreds of rolls on it before trading it in for something I thought would be better. I wish I still had it.’
Sanderson notes that he had customized the camera by painting the black wrap around the camera a shade of green, which should help in him locating the 35mm SLR camera. Him and the entire Amateur Photographer team is asking for any UK residents to help in the search for the camera.
