We’ve heard of photographers turning vehicles, bedrooms, and even skyscrapers into cameras. Well, photographer Ravi Hongal took things to a whole new level. This India-based photographer built an entire camera-shaped house to live in with his family. And while we’re at family, his passion for photography even had him to name his sons Canon, Nikon and Epson.
Times Now write that Ravi has been into photography ever since he was a child, taking photos with a Pentax film camera. He grew up to open a photo studio and named it after his wife Rani. But he apparently wanted something more to show off his passion for photography. As I mentioned, he named his three sons after famous brands, and the family lives together in a camera-shaped home.
Ravi’s dream house is located in Belgaum, India and it has three floors. The 49-year-old photographer reveals that he has spent over £75,000 to build it. On the outside, you can see different photography-related elements like a lens, a speedlight, strips of film, and a memory card, along with his three sons’ names. But according to Caters Clips, the interior is decorated in a similar manner, with ceilings and walls designed as different parts of a camera.
I must admit that I quite like the house. It’s kinda kitsch, but I like some kitsch stuff. Although, I probably wouldn’t name my kids after camera brands. I guess I’m not that into photography after all.
