Fotomo!

Imagine Julian Beever and Peter Callesen built a robot that had an eye for photography… Presenting the incredible World of Fotomo by Kimio Itozaki. Itozaki creates little dioramas by shooting photos on the street from all different angles and then assembles the photos to recreate the perspective. The best part about his work is that he’s offering it up for free – you can actually print, cut-out, and build a Fotomo yourself!

Download and build your own Fotomo here:
