Don't discard those corrugated cardboard boxes lying around your house just yet. If you're as creative as American artist Marta Crass, maybe you can make a camera out of the plain brown material, too. Just check out this cool Nikon F replica!
Marta Crass from Knoxville, Tenessee sure knows how to turn trash into treasure. Using cardboard made from 40% recycled material, she hand-cuts and hand-makes all sorts of signages and sculptures that are not only earth-friendly, but also sights to behold!
Above is just one of her cardboard creations: a model of her grandfather’s 1960’s Nikon F camera, one of Nikon’s more successful and enduring ranges of photographic gear! Pretty cool, huh?
A wedding photographer based in New Jersey, Michelle Lange is all about weddings and engagements.

When a truly fascinating photograph hits you, it’s powerful enough to transport you to the story that is being told in that image.

You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
Opening next month, the show will include never-before-editioned photographs from the private archives of the acclaimed French New Wave photographer, as well as his lesser known landscape images taken during his travels in Asia.
