    Nice video on "Yama", my human skull stereo pinhole camera.

    The link is to a youtube video "Yama" the 500 year old Tibetan human skull stereo camera created to photograph Tibetan exodus.
    Shot in my studio in Tucson AZ.

    The craftmanship could be certainly admired, however, I cannot and I do not agree with using human body parts to create any artefacts. What will be the next? Bellows made from human skin? Perhaps I do not understand of what you call art, ok. You can call me narrow-minded, conservative, footling etc. if you like to. I simply do not like it. Sorry.
    The world is not black and white. It often looks good in grayscale, though.

    MartinS, while your viewpoint is of course valid, humans have been using parts of other humans for artefacts / decorations for the longest time. Not to insult anyone but there's a religion that uses an effigy of a dead man on a torture device as one of it's most sacred artefacts. I don't see much difference between the work of mr. Belger and that.

    i came across this project some months ago through your website. i really admire and am inspired by your work. keep it up!

    one thing i really like is the connections you make between the machines you construct and the subjects you photograph, it adds a whole extra dimension to the work. thanks for sharing
