Online article: “The first camera that David Janesko and Adam Donnelly built washed out to sea with the tide before they could take a single picture. A camera they constructed in the desert of Coachella Valley, California, dried so quickly that it cracked, crumbled and required hasty repairs. This is what happens when you forgo the marvels of modern manufacturing and decide to build your own cameras of materials found in nature: earth, stones, leaves, sticks, mud and sand.”
