What better way would there be to celebrate World Photography Day than by exploring an impressive collection of over 3,000 cameras – including almost every model of the Kodak Brownie camera that was ever produced. The Jim Matthew Camera Collection Trust has officially launched today with the aim of purchasing and providing public access to a collection of over 3,000 cameras, so that this dream can become a reality. 

These cameras were collected by the late Jim Matthews and are now currently housed in the village St Monans in East Neuk of Fife, Scotland. Jim Matthew's family are keen to keep the collection together and have offered it to the Jim Matthew Camera Collection Trust, which has been set up to take ownership and maintain the collection.
