nancy rexroth – iowa:

From 1970 to 1976 Nancy Rexroth completed Iowa, a series of images that evoke her memories and dreams of childhood in the Midwest. Working with a Diana camera, she embraced its defects – irregular exposures, bent perspective and blurred focus. As Nancy explains, “The Diana’s made for feelings. Diana images are often something you might see faintly in the background of a photograph… sometimes, I feel I could step over the edge of a frame and walk backwards into this unknown region. Then I would keep right on walking…”

some amazing pictures here. i’d love to have a diana, but it seems that lately the camera collectors have discovered the camera and the prices are going through the roof. via gmtplus9.
