Pinhole Cameras as Art


Wayne Martin Belger makes his own pinhole cameras. Each camera is its own work of art! Cameras are designed to photograph different subjects, and often incorporate the subject in the materials. Some can seem gruesome, containing blood, bone, or other biological relics. This camera is named Sons of Abraham (9/11) and is made from
...a solid block 6061 T6 Aircraft Aluminium inlayed with a piece of the Bible from 1860, a piece of the Koran from1960 and a piece of the Torah from 1880. The jagged piece of metal in the front of the camera with the pinhole in it was once part of a support beam holding up the South Tower of the World Trade Center.

I swear I feel like you're following me around the internet sometimes. On a very regular basis, some website I randomly looked at will show up on the site a day or two later.

I had the good fortune to see some of his pieces at the Device Gallery in La Jolla CA this summer. Really beautiful and intricate work. The one entitled "Deer" was particularly mesmerizing.
