Czech photographer Miroslav Tichy’s images of Czech women are impressive in their own right. What’s even more fascinating are the handmade cameras fashioned from pieces of discarded trash that Tichy uses to capture his subjects.
Tichy is in his 80s, but his work has only been discovered relatively recently. Tichy has been creating these trash cameras since the 1950s with paper towel tubes, thread spools, rubber bands, masking tape and other oft-forgotten detritus.
Tichy's work is currently being shown at the Centre Pompidou in Paris.
