Paul Fisk's modified camera experiments


"I see myself as a machine operator, a machinist gets a drawing for a part then works out the best way to make that part and sometimes has to make other parts to achieve that.


So that is how I often work for these type of pictures. I start with a drawing/doodle then see how/if I can achieve that. I make many parts using a 3d printer for some. I modify cameras and even exploit the camera faults but mostly I mask in front of the lens and behind it. For most of these pictures I work in the very belly of the film consuming beast, the camera is my workshop/darkroom which has to be one of the smallest darkrooms around."
