Porn 4: Maude

Agfa Isolette

This is the Isolette. She was made in 1950, give or take, and she’s one of the first models of postwar. She takes 6×6 photographs, which is a fundamentally awesome thing.

In many ways, she reminds me of Maude in the movie Harold and Maude — a strange, chipper old bat with a lot more life in her than people would think, and with absolutely no inclination to be relegated to a nice display case. This old bat will steal your film and go off taking pictures on her own if you don’t take her with, and she will be flippant and irreverent.

Can’t keep the old girl down.
