When you think about it, the nostalgic collectors of both vinyl and analogue photos have a lot in common. The ‘heart’ of either media is in their inbuilt imperfection, physicality and fleeting nature.
The crackle of a vinyl evokes the same emotion as the filter of a polaroid, a realness that purists claim you cannot find in digital reproductions. It’s natural to combine the two, which is what makes this photo series so sublime.
Go double retro with Long Play, a supremely curated museum of analogue photos capturing obsessive vinyl culture for over a decade.
Arne Reimer is the photographer who has explored this connection in the recently published Long Play, which includes material collected from over a decade spent in the record stores of Europe and the USA.
