“Relics of Technology”, a still life photo project by Jim Golden

May 3, 2014 /Photography News/ Here’s an inspired and entertaining still life photography project by Jim Golden called "Relics of Technology," documenting technology of the past. 

Photographer statement:

 "The seeds for the Relics of Technology project started when I found a brick cell phone at a thrift store in rural Oregon. Since finding it, similar bits and pieces of old technology and media kept grabbing my attention. The fascination was equal parts nostalgia for the forms, and curiosity as to what had become of them. One thing led to another and I was on the hunt for groups of media and key pieces of technology, most of which have now been downsized to fit in the palm of our hand. These photos are reminders that progress has a price and our efforts have an expiration date."
- Jim Golden
