This might look like a pile of garbage, but it’s actually one of the homemade camera used by Miroslav Tichý from the 1960s until 1985. He made his equipment from things he had on hand: plywood, road asphalt, thread spools, etc… His lenses would be created from toilet paper tube with custom lenses created from Plexiglas that had been sanded with sandpaper and then polished with toothpaste and cigarette ashes. For his enlarger, he used sheets of metal, two fence slats, a light bulb, and a tin can. Tichý used his equipment to take thousands of stalker-ish pictures of strangers (mostly women) in the Czech Republic. You can find some of his work here.
