This compact camera is only one dollar… literally. Won Park, an artist that does origami using money, folded this camera using a dollar bill without cuts, glue, or tape. You can find more of his creations here, though this is the only photography-related one.

Having a coffee table that looks like a giant photo album is already pretty unique, but what about a coffee table that also functions as one?

This might be something you’d see if Flickr moved into the advertising business. It’s an advertising spot taken over by Homer.

Great photos come from happy cameras. Fabric artist Nicole Gastonguay crocheted this cute little Polaroid camera and picture duo. You can find a whole gallery of her wonderful creations here, though we think this photography-related one is the neatest of them all!

Photographer Thomas Hudson Reeve shoots pinhole photographs in a pretty interesting way — rather than using photo-sensitive paper or film inside a separate camera, he creates the camera using photo paper itself. The resulting photograph is exposed onto the inside of the photo-sensitive camera (which he calls the “PaperCam”), and creates a pretty surreal look when opened up and developed.
“Instant Rainbow” is a beautiful poster for Polaroid fans by Yumalum. You can buy one for $55 through Etsy.
Flickr user Paul Little creates surreal images he calls “HDR Mixes” by combining different photographs with the help of HDR software. While you’re normally supposed to feed the program multiple versions of the same photo (which are bracketed), with HDR Mixes you use two photos of the same scene and a third that’s completely unrelated.
“Space Program” is a project by artist Tom Sachs featuring 1:1 models of various space related objects, including an Apollo lunar module, a mission control unit, space suits, and handmade space suits. He also included the above NASA Hasselblad camera as part of the exhibition. Note the stylish wooden crank.

“Hipster traps” have been springing up across New York City, and one of the baits used is a Holga 120N camera. The traps are the latest project by artists Jeff Greenspan and Hunter Fine.
Urban Traps is a project where we lay traps for certain subcultures. Our goal is protect neighborhoods from infestation and collect different species for further study. [#]
Other items used for bait are sunglasses, a yellow bicycle chain, a can of PBR and a pack of American Spirits.
