Curious cameras made from stuffed armadillos and turtle shells

Cameras are usually the instruments of art creation, but in their Camera Collection, artists Taiyo Onorato and Nico Krebs turn cameras into objects of art themselves. They remove the devices from their usual metal and plastic shells, replacing them with unexpected, and sometimes natural, coverings.

Onorato and Krebs' series is an intriguing exploration of technology and the materials we use to make it. In addition to these armadillo, horn, and shell cameras, they also have a handful of cameras made from stacks of books, using one medium to house the creation of another.
