Four eyes
An unusual camera provides a unique perspective on Springfield
By Tim Murphy

Freelancer Tim Murphy set down his digital camera for his latest photography project and picked up a new toy: Lomography's SuperSampler 35mm model.

It's made out of bright-blue rubber, has four lenses and requires no batteries. A pull cord advances the film, which is exposed by four chambers on each frame. The four parts of the frame can be exposed all at the same time or over a series of about 3 seconds, which allows for the photographer to change the perspective as it fires off the four shots. And the film is developed like any other roll. Remember those days?

"It is very light and sounds much like a wind-up toy robot when you take a picture," says Murphy, a member of the Prairie Art Alliance. "It's a fun way to explore photography and create."

We hope you enjoy this different look around town.
