Cardboard Cameras

I bet you think you know what this article is all about. Well, If you guessed Paper Pinhole Camera, my apologies, but you guessed wrong.

Unconvinced? Perhaps I must reiterate. No, I am not talking about the Paper Pinhole Camera.

The camera series is just amazing. From Polaroids to SLRs, Kiel constructed each piece with painstaking detail. The corners, curves, lines and buttons, every facet, are lifelike. Art has never been this tastefully geeky.
