About the book:
In this DIY guide for photographers, Cyrill Harnischmacher demonstrates how you can build your own cameras and adapt lenses with simple means and materials that can be found in any hardware store. It shows how digital and analog photography can be creatively combined and how photography is no longer reduced to fractions of a second. Important aspects of the projects presented are the slowed down use of analog technology, the fun of tinkering and working and the enjoyable examination of the photographic motif.
