今天看某本藝術雜誌的時候看到這台相機
不想看的不要點進來

Wayne Martin Belger constructs sacred photographic machines that he then uses to capture kindred imagery.
These constructions are essentially handmade pinhole cameras that are assembled from relics and custom machined parts.
These cameras have a sacred mystical feel to them and seem to be imbued with the spiritual presence of the relics.

The image above is of a camera he calls “Third Eye”, it is constructed of Aluminium, Titanium, Brass, Silver, Gem Stones and a 150 year old skull of a 13 year old girl.
Light enters the hole in the center of the skull and exposes the film.
The hole is positioned in the location traditionally considered the third eye, often believed to be the gate that leads within to realms of higher consciousness.
 To view the world through the third eye is to see things from an enlightened point of view.
Belger wants the images to be “processed” through the dead girls “enlightened” view instead of his own personal photographic vision.
This creates a unique relationship between artist and medium.

拍出來的照片

" The creation of a camera comes from my desire to relate to a subject.
When I choose a subject I spend time studying it.
Then I start visualizing how I would like a photo of the subject to look.
When that’s figured out, I start on the camera stage of the project by collecting parts,
artifacts and relics that relate to the subject. - Wayne Martin Belger
