a life creative
Since I’ve just completed a summer session in photography at uni I thought I’d proudly display my final assessment beauty – the nautilus shell pinhole camera. Yes, it’s a camera, and has taken some interesting images from the first go. I love the infinite depth of perspective that the pinole gives and the fact the image can be captured directly onto paper. I had the most fun creating the camera itself, sculpting the snail coreolis from homemade playdough (wholemeal gluten-free, which was the only thing on hand).
painting it to look like a snail shell,
then laquering it with enough polyurethane to make it bounce.
