The Anatomy of a Camera

Curious as to what is exactly inside your camera? As in every little nut and bolt inside? Well, artist Todd McLellan shows you just what's under the hood!

Whenever one of our old analogue cameras get broken or develop some kinks, we try our best to fix and repair it. Most of the time, we’re able to get them back to good working condition but occasionally, they lose their life and is relegated to being a fancy paperweight. Artist Todd McLellan though, went the distance and dissected old cameras and other vintage items and created some breathtaking works of art, exposing every minute detail in each piece. Beautiful aren’t they?

    I bet a holga would have dramatically fewer parts.

    wow! that's incredible. It would be nice to farme all the parts (like they are showed in the first image), sticking every part to the background of the frame and hang it in the wall.....
