The Mechanical Retina on My Fingertips by Issei SUDA
“The Mechanical Retina on My Fingertips” is how Suda named his Minox Camera that held him in thrall from 1991 to 1992.
The Minox camera is popularly known as a spy camera – It fits in the pocket with a shutter release as light as the blink of an eye.
The resulting images developed from 8x11mm negatives are grainy and have a flat perspective. Suda comments that “no other camera ever accompanied my activities so closely.”
