There is no denying it, pure nostalgia drives this series! I was wandering at the Quartsite Arizona swap meet one winter and found a table of "Real Kodak Large Format Lenses" for $15US. Oddly, they didn't say "Kodak" anywhere on them, came without a shutter and looked to be built with only two glass elements. Who could resist? Whatever the lens is, the off axis distortion was so fun that I just had to find a subject for the lens, and the "Toys Portfolio" was born. All of the images in the Toys Portfolio are printed in Kallitype onto cotton cloth, rather than paper.
