The image of the photographic camera from the beginning of the discovery of photography in 1827 has evolved its design from the simple camera obscura (a mere obscure place with a little hole) until the most sophisticated cameras of today. However, that very image has become with the passage of time an icon, which has been appropriated by other areas different than photography.  That is why we can find designs in key holders, toys, suitcases, etc.

This Project is a documentation around this photographic icon alien to photography.

This series won a HONOR MENTION at the "6th BIENNIAL. 20th COLOMBIAN PHOTOGRAPHY HALL" organized by the Medellín Photography Club, and exhibited at the "Suramericana Art Hall" in 2008.
