Czech photographer Miroslav Tichý captures images using handmade cameras built from salvaged material - discarded wooden spools, elastics, eyeglass lenses, and cardboard tubing find new life as part of his imaging gear. The resulting work is a testament to the poetic value error, imprecision, and circumstance can add to art.

When asked about the theory behind his work, Tichy replied -

If you want to be famous, you have to do whatever you're doing worse than anyone else in the whole world.
