Yama Camera. Designed for the study of exodus and for the research of modern incarnations of historical iconic figures, this camera is named Yama, the Tibetan God of Death. In Tibetan Buddhism, Yama will see all of life and Karma is the “judge” that keeps the balance. Yama’s eyes are cast from bronze and silver with .9999% pure gold pinholes in each. A divider runs down the middle of the skull creating two separate cameras. A finished contact print mounted on copper is inserted in to the back of the camera to view what Yama saw in 3D.

Wayne Martin Belger, who was featured in a recent issue of photo technique (in an article written by Robert Hirsch) was just on the TV Show “Oddities” on the SCIENCE Channel with his Yama Skull Pinhole Camera. Check the website for info on a re-broadcast- the preview on the show’s homepage looks very neat! Watch or set your DVR for the full 30 minute episode called “Skull Camera Obscura” Saturday March 9th at 11:30pm.
