We all like a good old jukebox – that nostalgia, the inevitable ridiculous dancing and the old-fashioned cliche that is sounds SO much better than the modern day equivalent. But photographer Ken Brown can really make you appreciate the beauty of these wonderful retro contraptions.
Gloriously capturing each jukebox’s intensity of colour, smooth lines and attention to design, he photographs them so beautifully that you’d be happy to look at them all day and forget that they ever had a musical function.
And it’s not all about the outside Ken pays tribute to – he also photographs the intricacies of the inside of each machine so perfectly, you’ll suddenly find yourself leering over the mechanics as if you were some sort of fanatic (which you might be for all we know).
