Kwanon and Vollenda Camera
Kwanon and Vollenda Camera

These two miniature camera key chains, eventually named Vollenda and Kwanon, started out as props for a photo-of-the-day project and went on to become La Grange's favorite personified faux cameras; reviewing restaurants, attending local events, and tracking other photo series on Moments Before Dawn's Facebook page. Today, the duo continue to blog about their adventures around Chicagoland and beyond on their own social media channels.
