The Bibliophile's Camera

This camera was made from a stack of hollowed-out books on photography and is part of the latest collaboration between Swiss artists Taiyo Onorato and Nico Krebs. The pair have created a pictorial exploration documenting experiments in DIY camera manufacturing, using materials that are quite unorthodox such as: turtle shells, rocks and even an unidentified musical instrument. They explain," We were moving studios, in between projects, and wanted to publish something quickly. We found ourselves thinking about what a camera is, or what it needs to have. The expression of the camera “body” became the starting point for the project"
