If you are creative enough, you can make a camera from all kinds of things. And two UK artists, Michael (Mick) Farrell and Cliff Haynes created, were creative enough to make one from 32,000 drinking straws. We’ve seen and made some DIY photo projects with straws, but Straw Camera is the most unordinary and the most demanding so far. The results are truly amazing, and most of all – unusual and unique.
As Cliff explains, he and Mick started the process of creating the camera in 2007. Their idea was to create the images in the most direct possible manner. The idea started from Mick’s interest in pinhole cameras, but the straw camera actually works in a different way.
