Diana+ lomography camera, c.2010
Rose serving tray, c.1950s
Retro wire covered bottle, c.1950s
Sticking with the photography theme of posts past, but deviating somewhat from my retro mania- how cool is this Diana+ lomography camera?
Made by lomography, an American company, this is a recreation of the 60s cult classic Diana camera, which was designed to compete with Kodak Instantmatics. The whole camera was plastic, including the lens, which meant it didn’t compete so well. The plastic camera also let in light, which at the time was a nuisance –now however lomographists the world over embrace the ‘dreamlike characteristics light spill’ lends to a photo.
This vignette is completed with a classic 50s photographic image tray [those roses- much retouched!] and a wire covered bottle. A mixed metaphor, to be sure…but I think the colour combinations work well together.
I appreciate that the Diana+ camera is the standout of the group [cost wise] so please let me know if you would like to buy it separately. This set is for sale: $AUD75
