People make cameras out of some crazy things, including LEGOs and boxes. But according to the latest interview on American Photo via the Verge, Nico Krebs and Taiyo Onorato have combined taxidermy with photography. And we’re not talking about photographing the process. Instead, the pair would take apart cameras and create a franken-camera of sorts by using dead animals such as turtles, armadillos, and others. But they also include intricate designs and the cameras actually capture some really beautiful images.
It seems like lots of work went not only into the functionality but also the looks of the devices. We can only imagine an 8×10 camera made from the shell of a giant tortoise.
