turtle cameraWe’ve come across our fair share of cameras of different designs, but for the most part many seem to keep the traditional camera design and probably just feature different colors or materials. However it seems that photographers Nico Krebs and Taiyo Onorato are taking things to the extreme and as you can see in the image above, they are making cameras out of pretty unique and a little disturbing materials. Now it should be noted that the animal parts or bodies used were not killed specifically for the creation of these cameras, so animal activists out there can probably rest easy.

The “materials” used include taxidermied armadillos and turtles, while the less disturbing choice of materials include horns and even a stack of books, instruments and even stone. So the question is while these are some pretty unique looking cameras, are they functional? According to their creators, some of the cameras are functional although they weren’t meant to be used to take any photos to begin with, but were rather created for their art book, As Long As It Photographs / It Must Be A Camera. In any case if you’d like to check out more photos, you can head on over to their website.
