The Idlozi: A Hand Made Talbotype Camera

A homemade Talbotype camera seems like a ridiculous idea, but Polish photographer Emil Stankiewicz executes it perfectly!

Handcrafting your photography, from the building of the camera to actually printing the picture, has got to be one of the most fulfilling feelings in the world. Polish photographer Emil Stankiewicz meticulously built an amazing Talbotype camera by hand. It is dubbed as “Idlozi”, the word coming from African origins and meaning a window to your heritage soul.

The camera is 100% homemade, and it should come to no surprise that the photo papers are homemade as well. Now that’s really giving each image a part of yourself!

    How cool! Nice camera and equipment and materials. But, what is with the 35mm in the shot?
