Blinding light and light leaks, pretty pastel colors, nostalgic childhood memories… I rarely have pleasant dreams these days so when I do, I try to cling to the lucid feelings and desire to recreate those very details in my photographs.
Luckily, there is a camera out there perfect for the job of retelling my mental pictures into actual lo-fi photos. The classic Diana F+ is iconic with its lightweight plastic body, simple shutter, color-dripping lens and soft-focused surprises.
The real challenge is spotting the elusive characters, finding the distant locations, and regenerating the happy thoughts that occurred in my dreams. Hopefully, armed with rolls of 120 film and recollections of my Diana dreams, I can will them to happen again in real life.
