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