American Photo features a great article about fun plastic cameras. Let's check it out, shall we?
One of my favorite magazines, the American Photographer, just published in the March/April issue a great article about plastic cameras by Michelle Bates. The very same Michelle Bates who wrote one of my favorite books, Plastic Cameras: Toying With Creativity. Some of the early history and current artists working with Holgas and Dianas are included in the eight page article. “ The International Lomographic Society , a champion of low-tech photography, brought back the Diana as the Diana+ . Both the Diana+ and the Holga are now endowed with entire lines of plastic-camera accessories. “ said Michelle Bates.
The really great part of this article is the mention many times of the International Lomographic society as being the place to find these cameras and accessories such as the Holgas, Diana F, and now the Diana Mini. I was so very pleased to see and read this article I wanted to share it with my fellow Lomographer friends. Pick up this month’s March/April issue of American Photo or check it out at your public library. You will also find the lovely goodbye to Steve McCurry’s Kodachrome. Loved this issue, I am sure you will as well!

Lassi, one of our awesome Petzval Lens Kickstarter backers, came to visit us at Lomography HQ this week. We had a brilliant time introducing him to the Lomography team, showing him some of the Vienna sights and generally having fun.

Head past the jump to find out more about the great time we had with Lassi and to see some old-school Petzval shots!
In 1966, American artist Dan Graham published an article about typical one-family homes in ordinary American suburbs built after World War II. He used a cheap Kodak Instamatic camera, with a deliberately amateur approach. In this article, I wrote a tribute to him with a series of photos taken in the suburbs of my city, Como, using my pretty Diana Mini camera. Read more after the jump!
