How I store and show off my cameras and photos

Fire image I am off topic, but I wanted to share how I store and display my pictures. These are just some ideas, and I don’t try to be exaustive or anything. I just explain some of the things I do.

Display photos

The awesome artisans at [Branca Ebenistes](https://www.facebook.com/BrancaEbenistes/] have made for me this shelves to display pictures. It install in such a clever way that no screws are to be seen. It is around one meter wide and has a slot at 3º. Thre results are incredible, one is laquered white and the other is wood. Thank you Jaume.

Of course I also use the ingenious PolaStand that was gifted to me. Please check my post about it.

The camera

I saw on the internet a picture of a block of wood with a 16 degrees slope holding a camera. I was massive, and, in my opinion, it was awesome.

So again Jaume at Branca Ebenistes made me one. It is one piece of wood.

Long term storage

First of all check Marco’s video about storing Polaroids. I think he has some great ideas.

Ever since early 2017 I take at least one SX70 picture that I store. This came as a challenge on how to do it properly and systematially.

I ended up using binders, nothing speciall about them. Here in the EU they are A4. I like these because you can somehow customize them. But the key part are those (no shit) beer-mat holder sheets. I buy them bulk from a local manufacturer so it makes not much sense to list the brand. In any case I think they might not be made with the “proper” kind of plastic. So I expect them to be melting sometime in the future. I found better (as museum grade plastic or something) but the pictures don’t fit.

Then for bulk storage I use the wood case that come with (really) nice wine bottles

Having said that I admit that the Impossible project SX70 binders were the best. Unfortunately they no longer make them.

So this is it so far, if I come up with some other way to this I will update this post.
