What if cameras got tired of participating in human selfies and decided one day to start taking pictures of themselves? That’s the quirky idea behind a project called “CameraSelfies” by German photographer Juergen Novotny (who also goes by J. Flynn Newton).

The series features photos of various cameras “looking at themselves” in front of contemporary wallpapers that capture the cameras’ personalities.

“You are the mirror” when looking at these images, Novotny writes.
