To say that Kiel Johnson has a soft spot for cardboard would be an understatement. Kiel makes amazing works of art from paper and cardboard and his projects demonstrate incredible attention to detail. Kiel finds inspiration in all manner of objects from cameras and musical instruments to boomboxes and microphones. He’s even created a printing press.
Below are just a few of his creations but we’d urge you to go and take a look at his website. Kiel generously provides us with lots of information on how these works are created and his website features some great behind the scenes images from his workshop. This video showing the creation of his cardboard twin lens reflex camera is well worth watching. They ended up turning it into a working pinhole camera and taking some photographs too! These additional insights are just as inspiring as the works themselves.
