We have seen some interesting items inspired by photography gear, such as a chocolate Nikon camera or lens-inspired watches. A Seoul-based design studio DOTMOT has also found inspiration in photography. They have created a colorful replica of a photography kit, consisting of a DSLR, two interchangeable lenses and an external flash, and everything is carefully crafted out of colorful paper.
The paper camera kit was made to resemble a film camera, both in its shape and size. It’s so finely made and carefully assembled, that it lets you mount two different lenses, an external flash, and a lens cap – all made from paper, too. The DOTMOT team paid a lot of attention to details, so every little dial, knob, and button is there, too.
The paper camera doesn’t take photos, though. However, it crossed my mind that perhaps it could be turned into a pinhole camera. This way, you could actually use it to take photos with it. I asked the creators if the paper camera kit can be seen anywhere and if it’s going to be sold. They told DIYP that there’s only one piece they made for display only, and unfortunately, it’s not for sale. Still, you can scroll down and enjoy the images of this unique camera-inspired piece of art. You can see more photos of the paper camera here, and make sure to visit DOTMOT’s website and follow them on Instagram.
