This Vintage Style Camera Is Made From Legos, Cardboard, And Duct Tape

Dominique Vankan wanted to try out some old-school photography, we’re talking really old-school, a early 1900s process called Autochrome Lumière. Appartnely he decided not to find an old camera to do it, and instead build one out of modern wonders including cardboard, Legos, and duct tape.

The camera isn’t just for show, of course. It actually works, and takes some pretty neat looking pictures to boot. They aren’t the highest quality, but that isn’t the point. We’re talking a makeshift camera working with a process that’s a century old, and considering that, the outcome is righteous.
