Adrian Borda is an artist (surrealist painter) and photographer from Reghin, Romania. Inspired by an old print campaign for the Berlin Philharmonic, Borda managed to take a fascinating series of photos from the insides of old instruments like a cello and contrabass.
To achieve these shots, Borda fit a Sony NEX-6 camera equipped with a Samyang 8mm fisheye lens inside the instrument and then used a smart remote so he could preview the workflow on his phone.
The way the light illuminates the interiors make for some fascinating captures and you can see more from the series along with Borda’s surrealist paintings at the links below!
“I live in Reghin, Romania also called the city of violins”
“I don’t know much about the instruments I have already photographed, they were broken, open for repairs, so I was able to put the cameras inside them”
