The Camera Library

Our cameras, much like people, have their own personalities. Their quirks. Their own destinies that we encourage you as creatives to go out and achieve with them. Some of our cameras have a vintage of over one hundred years, others are new, embodying the artistic technique of old to bring analogue photography into the modern age. Through Cork City Libraries, we invite you to play, learn and explore our collection. 

How To Use The Camera Library

There are several ways to work with cameras from the Slow Camera Exchange depending on your experience.
