These camera sculptures are the creation of artist Daniel Arsham, and part of an exhibition for a Philadelphia museum called Reach Ruin. Over 100 sculptures were created out of things like plaster, stone, sand and glass. Uniquely, each is meant to represent, in extreme detail, a real-life current model of digital camera. In some cases, he's created literal armies of the same model.

According to the artist, the purpose of these camera sculptures is to question if photography fans really like cameras for what they can do, or if they're truly just fixated on their clean physical forms. He does this by divorcing their appearance from their function. The show itself will run until march 2013, but in the meantime, photos are available on the artist's website.
