Fancy a bit of lomo lovinâ€™? The Diana World Tour finally makes a pit stop at Sydney, Melbourne and Auckland after doing the rounds amongst a bevy of international cities. This celebration of everything lo-fi exhibits some kooky artistic interpretations of analogue photography, with each artist customizing their own Diana camera body.
The Detrich Collection involves over a hundred Diana cameras from the 60s-70s; a spectacle of cult classics and intricate details, amassed by enthusiast Allan Detrich. The Customised Clones Exhibition is a collaboration with artists and illustrators who have created artfully decorated one-off clones, to be auctioned online for charity. And if youâ€™ve purchased a Diana camera, why not head to a $20 workshop in Paddington?
