This series of photographs pays homage to the era of analogue cameras and film projectors. Ireland's first dedicated cinema , the Volta was opened and managed by James Joyce in 1909. The dominance of film projection has lasted for over a hundred years. Only relatively recently has the majority of Irish cinemas made the transition to digital projection. The objective of these photographs is to reference and mark this historic transition and to serve in an archival role in preserving the traces of an increasingly obsolete media technology. It is an appropriate time to acknowledge and pay tribute to both the technical achievements and the aesthetic beauty of the cine cameras and projectors of the analogue era.
