A camera made of money

All good cameras are expensive. This one is literally made of money (a single dollar bill, uncut of course).

Folded by me, from the great “Dollar Origami” book by Won Park.

About Matthew Green

I am an origami artist and photographer (and teacher of both), a blogger, a freelance translator, former philosophy professor, and I love to sing. You can see my photos on Flickr and buy prints of some of them on Fine Art America. You can find me on Instagram, Twitter (@mehjg), and in various and sundry other social media sites on the web.

    Your work is truly amazing and each release is better than the last. I remember as a child struggling to make the simplest shapes with the special colored rice paper and seeing your mastry with currency is a true inspiration. Keep up your amazing work and keep sharing it!

    Wow! How long does it take you to create a piece like this?

    • I don’t remember exactly how long it took to fold this one. Probably around half an hour. It would be a little faster the second time around (this was my first try following these instructions).

    Fr. Matthew, you could sell these for a dollar. Wonder if anyone would snap them up?

    You go Fr. Matthew! You are amazing with a piece of paper. Love the camera.
