yo, cats... I found this guy, Miroslav Tichy, on gizmodo... just look at what gothically beautiful photos are coming from this hodge podgy camera made of trash!
Here is a little excerpt from the article.
it's Miroslav Tichy, posing with one of his amazing trash cams, which he fabricated from paper towel tubes, thread spools, rubber bands and other bits of detritus and has used since the 1950s. Now in his 80s, Tichy and his works have only recently (as far as the art world goes) been discovered. And like all good photographers, he trained his intentionally imperfect camera rigs on the considerably more refined female form.
Here's a link to the article on Gizmodo... enjoy!
