The Detrich Collection:
View the treasured Detrich Collection, a collection of over a hundred Diana and Diana Clone Cameras produced from the 60’s to 70’s. Mr Allan Detrich was able to amass what must be the most incredible collection of Diana cameras and Diana clones in the entire world. Each of these Diana variants have their own unique charm, special details, and occasionally insane graphic elements. Not to mention some really fantastic names like “Windsor”, “Debutante”, “Colorama”, and the amazing “Future Scientist!” In Spring 2007, the Lomographic Society purchased this incredible batch of cameras and absolutely thrilled to present it as the priceless “Detrich Collection”. Originally seen as simple cameras to play and learn with, they have now become cult classics and are regularly worshipped by analogue lovers worldwide.
The DWT Global Vignettes Collection:
A stunning selection of Diana images from around the world, the photographers being from our very own global community of Lomographers and Diana F+ lovers. Included will be images from local Lomographers to complete this FIRST TIME EVER VIEWED collection. Expect to see a cultural montage of Diana images at their best!
The Customised Clones Exhibition:
A collection of 25 Diana cameras, customised by some of the most interesting artists, illustrators, creative types and good-time Lomography friends that Australia and New Zealand has to offer. Each clone is a complete one-off and will be exhibited as part of the 3 city tour and auctioned online to raise money for a couple of charities in need of our support – www.seethroughme.com.au and World Child Cancer.
Stay tuned for an exlusive insight into a fantastic artist collection and more stops in Australia / NZ to come up!
