This work was designed for an exhibition that theme is “Travel”.
For me, it’s necessary to take along a camera when traveling. I switched from a film camera to a digital camera, and smart phone. But even now, I still like to pack a film camera in my bag if there is enough room. This work is modeled after the spring camera of the 1950s. Unlike my ordinary work, this does not include any difficult puzzle. Although it is designed so that a camera strap may be attached, I do not recommend picking it up by the strap or letting it hang from your neck, as the work may not be strong enough to support the total weight.
This work is oil-finished. Please be careful as scratches adhere easily.
