Wayne Martin Belger Insane Custom Cameras

Wayne Martin Belger is a dark genius. he is an avid photographer who not only takes eerie pics but actually designs and creates some of the scariest looking photo-taking equipment out there! His camera all have some form of significance, either artistic or spiritual. The following are some of his many cameras and a pic taken with that camera.


4”x5” camera made from Aluminium, Copper, Titanium, Acrylic and HIV positive blood. The blood pumps through the camera then in front of the pinhole and becomes my #25 red filter. Designed to shoot a geographic comparison of people suffering from HIV.


Designed to take photos of soon-to-be mothers who are at least 8 months pregnant, and explore my relationship with my twin brother who died at birth. 4”x5” camera made from Aluminium, Titanium, Acrylic, Formaldehyde and an infant human heart.

Third Eye

Designed to study the beauty of decay. 4”x5” camera made from Aluminium, Titanium, Brass, Silver, Gem Stones and a 150 year old skull of a 13 year old girl. Light and time enters at the third eye, exposing the film in the middle of the skull.


Designed for the study of exodus and for the research of modern incarnations of historical iconic figures.

The latest 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. The skull was blessed by a Tibetan Lama for its current journey to the refugee cities in India.
Yama’s eyes are cast from bronze and silver with a brass pinhole 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.
