Christ the Redeemer, Rio de Janeiro

 

Photographer Oliver Curtis has spent the last four years going to famous places and pointing his camera in the opposite direction — purposefully capturing the landmarks without the actual landmark. See more images from “Volte-face” below.

  • Good concept, 🙂

  • Theo Acworth

    These are beyond amazing, love it.

  • Taste of France

    These are wonderful! I’ve been to most of them, and it’s true that you focus on the “sight” and see and appreciate the surroundings but don’t think to photograph them. That Taj shot is especially fabulous.

35mm Camera Made Entirely with 3D Printing

slo2

SLO is a 35mm camera created by 3D designer Amos Dudley, every part of which is 3D printed, including the lenses (although those took about 5 – 6 hours to be sanded down by hand). Designed with a modular lens and shutter system, the lenses can be swapped in/out and longer exposure photos achieved using the shutter buttons along the top. More images of SLO below! You can also check out Dudley’s blog here, where he documented the entire project.
