Gallery: Four Corner Store Upcycles Old Cameras into Cool Urban Designs

 
The designs, formed from discarded objects found on the street, are created by a range of artists from Asia and the US, who clean up the salvaged items to build new vintage designs.

Four Corner Store recently launched this series of upcycled cameras and stands — a quirky collection of cameras that have been transformed into camera art installations. The designs, formed from old analog cameras, are created by a range of artists from Asia and the US, who clean up the salvaged items to build new vintage designs. The end result is a functional piece of art that is at once innovative and nostalgic.

Lead by Singapore-based artist PHU, the Darkroom Army project produces the customized machines ensuring that they are fully functional vintage designs. A particularly fantastic concept from the collaborators is the Darkroom Army, which are variations of the FED-5 Camera. Instead of letting the Ukrainian cameras be left to ruin, the team created these imaginative vintage machines.
