Snap a photo with a turtle shell

Your camera may not seem so interesting compared with these shooters made out of reclaimed taxidermy subjects and other objects.

Give us your best caption in a comment -- what is this turtle thinking? Taiyo Onorato and Nico Krebs

Taxidermy and technology aren't two words you usually associate with one another, but Swiss artists Taiyo Onorato and Nico Krebs managed to make the two subjects collide in an unconventional series of works featuring cameras made out of the hallowed remains of books, armadillos, and turtles. Yes, you read that correctly.

Fortunately, no animals were harmed in the making of the series, as Onorato and Krebs sourced the creatures from flea markets and other uncommon outlets.

Viewing the gallery below, you'll see that the duo, who often dabble in the stranger side of contemporary art, took the term "do it yourself" to a completely different level in "As Long As It Photographs" and "It Must Be A Camera," their two-volume portfolio on the subject.
