Lomography is both a brand and an aesthetic, being the name of the low-tech revival in analog photography as exemplified by basic box cameras like the Russian Lomo, the Holga and the Diana and Diana F+.
A black plastic box with an aquamarine trim, the Diana camera gives new meaning to the stripped down words "point" and "click". Not much in the way of controls, which is why the pictures are usually so out of control, and out of focus, or color registration, which is exactly how all the Lomo-maniacs out there like them!
I was lucky to find an original Diana in its original box at the flea market. Love that Made In Hong Kong marking!
Even the minimal mechanics of this primitive camera can't hide the artistry of that dazzling smile!
Now Elsa has the bug and her own new Diana! I look forward to sharing with you more of our adventures in lomography here.
