THE LOMOFILES

THE LOMOFILES (2012 – 2013)

Lomo Mini Diana

The Lomo Mini Diana is a basic, plastic camera and something of a cult icon. Having been given one for my 30th birthday, it soon became my obsession.

I carried my Diana everywhere I went for over a year, using it to document fleeting moments of everyday life and embracing the lo-fi quality images and unexpected results it produces.

The Lomofiles were created as a homage to a one year love affair with a Lomo camera.

The camera travelled wherever I did during my 30th year, not only documenting my experiences but enabling me to experiment with the conventional ideas of composition and the perfect image; shooting from the hip, trying to capture on negative the fleeting moments seen through my eyes.
