I spotted these stylish images depicting 1980’s relics by Austin Texas based photographer Cody Hamilton earlier this week and have been meaning to post them since then. The items, usually colourful in appearance, have been stripped back and shot on a plain background giving them an almost ghostly feel.
As Hamilton explains: “Relics is a project playing off the idea that the white Greek statues that we see now were once bright, colorful and vibrant. I wanted to bring that idea to the most colorful and vibrant decade ever, the 80’s!” Great idea, nice work.
The images above are:
Atari 2600 joystick – 1982.
Motorola 8000x – 1983.
Ray-Ban Wayfarer – 1982.
Stay Puft Marshmallow Man – 1984.
