SECONDING THAT EMOTION

Published on .

Research shows that teens take pictures to capture feelings, not memories. So Saatchi & Saatchi/New York's new teencentric print campaign for Kodak's kicky little TX-USE camera keeps it point-and-shoot simple but arresting. Several everyday teen scenes are shown with one or two subjects framed in pseudo viewfinders, headlined with contrasting sensations. A boy diving into a pool is "Capture joy"; another boy bellyflopping into a pool is "Capture pain." A skateboarder showing off by grabbing his board at the top of a pipe is "Capture awe"; the skater himself, however, is "Capture doubt." More subjective emotions, like crushes and heartbreaks, were excluded, says AD Carlos Figuerido. "We wanted to capture simple moments that everyone can understand."
