Agfa Ansco B-2 Shur-Shot Box Camera

6"x4" oil on raymar panel These old box cameras were so elegantly simple. So simple it seems that the manufacturers felt compelled to add the decorative metal face plates. The plates serve no purpose other than to deliver a dose of beauty. How considerate of Mr. Agfa or Mr. Ansco or Mr. Kodak or Mr. Whoever. I snagged this one based not only on its condition, but on the beauty of its art deco face plate. Of course, I splatter and gob and smoosh my colors all over it in my representation. Poor camera. Don't forget that next week is the last week of The Cityscape Show IV over at the George Billis Gallery in Culver City (see info below). If you haven't seen my three pieces in the show, try to get over there and check them out.
