As we all already know, the Holga is a cheap, light-weight camera from China that comes with a plastic lens and also a plastic body. Although it is known as a toy camera, it is not actually made for small children. I hated it at first but eventually fell in love with it!
Now, “don’t think, just shoot” has a deeper meaning for me: As I take each shot with my toy cameras, I simultaneously let go of worrying whether I got it right. As I press and let go of the shutter button, I let go of the fear of taking a crappy shot. Read how Lomography has taught me how to breathe easy.
Take two ordinary Holgas, stick them together with glue and make them as flat as the LCA and you have the dimensions of Holga 120 wpc. WPC? Ja, wide pinhole camera. And that is no lie!

At The Diana World Tour London we asked a series of top British artists to make some customized Diana+ for us. Some you can still use while others will be forever on art lock-down where their sole purpose will be to look beautiful!
