THE ART OF LIGHT
One day, a friend of mine gave me a Gibellini analog camera. As I looked at it, I thought of the hundreds of cell phone snaps we take unthinkingly without enjoying the pleasure of taking a real photograph. I thought of the magic, the strength and the time it takes to capture an image on a camera like this, after having reflected and meditated long and hard while waiting for the right light. You’re not just taking a photo, you’re experiencing an emotion.
I decided to become part of all this and, together with my designer, engineer and materials expert colleagues, we set to work and designed a photo camera. We wanted a design object crafted so painstakingly as to arouse an emotion in the beholder. We called it “GP810HP”.
Entering into the dynamics of such a complex mechanism was not easy, but with the help of Gibellini this challenge became possible and I hope it will thrill you as much as it thrilled me.“
