This guy built his camera out of trash, literally. Yes, it actually worked, and he took some amazing photos with it. Can’t remember his name, though.

    1. CAN’T REMEMBER HIS NAME THOUGH?!

      This is the most amazing thing I’ve seen in quite some time. Hopefully someone else can provide the name that belongs to this highly interesting individual. I’m stoked.

      • Incredible, I’m in awe. Now that’s what I call passion. Fuck, this man’s accomplishments, as small as they seem, are so much more than I could ever hope to achieve. Which I do anyway.

        “After studying at the Academy of Arts in Prague, Miroslav Tichý (born 1926) withdrew to a life in isolation in his hometown of Kyjov, Moravia, Czech Republic In the late 1950s he quit painting and became a distinctive Diogenes-like figure. From the end of the 1960s he began to take photographs mainly of local women, in part with cameras he made by hand. He later mounted them on hand-made frames, added finishing touches in pencil, and thus moved them from photography in the direction of drawing. The result is works of strikingly unusual formal qualities, which disregard the rules of conventional photography. They constitute a large oeuvre of poetic, dreamlike views of feminine beauty in a small town under the Czechoslovak Communist régime.”

    3. I did this in high school.

      You just expose the film to light for a minute or something.

      We did it with a barrel.

    4. I’m kind of expecting a caption that says “I’m Rob Zombie, the white”

    5. Yeah, just submitting images here, I’m not a god damn academic.

      Fuck, actually I am, just a very lazy one.

      Glad someone managed to dig up the info on this guy, cause he’s fascinating and his work is fucking gorgeous, his ingenuity unmatched.
