Basilicas is a print series that celebrates the form and function of classic cameras. Nine illustrations by Adrian Johnson depicting different models from emblematic brands such as Leica, Hasselblad, Rolleiflex, Mamiya, Olympus, Linhof and Polaroid. The name Basilicas is a nod to the likeness of these cameras to cathedrals, both with towering lenses and dark chambers, one capturing people in a moment of time, the other capturing their interior in a moment of veneration.
I'm an art director and illustrator based in Granada, Spain. I'm also web developer and blogger. After studying Chemistry at the University I realized that the only thing I liked in the laboratory were colored solutions placed on the selves. So I decided to start studying Art, then Graphic Design and finally Advertising and PR. I'm addicted to any kind of art and creativity. I love photography, music, reading, writing, travelling… and have a passion for languages.
