TaiyoOnorato_NicoKrebs_PhotographyCAMERA (TURTLE 1), 2011

Swiss duo Taiyo Onorato and Nico Krebs are known for their contemporary, cutting edge style in photography, sculpture and installation art that often comments on the history of photography and the nature of the medium. Camera Collection is their ingenious, handcrafted collection of cameras refashioned with far-out, unexpected objects. They are part of a two volume publication, As Long As It Photographs It Must Be A Camera—the first volume compiles photos of the cameras and the second features photos taken by the duo. The cameras are an impressive product of imagination alluding to the endless possibilites of photography. Which one’s your favorite?
