Lomography Toronto invited 17 artists to make new work with the classic Diana F+ camera for their CONTACT exhibition, Two and a Quarter. Curated by the lovely Kimon Kaketsis, who helped me load my film a lot ‘cause I kept forgetting how to. Here are some outtakes that won’t be in the show. Come tonight for the opening!
Steven Beckly, Rebecca Cairns, Jamie Campbell, Kevin Chaves, Michael Clarke, Nathan Cyprys, Shane Fester, Kimon Kaketsis, Brendan George Ko, Sabrina Maltese, Mike Morris, Andrew B Myers, Juliana Neufeld, Sarah Palmer, Jade Lee Portelli, Sammy Rawal, Elise Victoria Louise Windsor
The nostalgic qualities associated with analogue photography—aged, square prints, exposure flaws, soft focus, and light leaks—reappear in our contemporary snapshot imagery. Exploring the theme of nostalgia as trend and inspiration, this group exhibition highlights the creativity possible within the square image. In the spirit of the square revolution, each artist has created their own unique and imaginative image with the classic Diana F+ camera.
