Toy Cameras : The Book

The postman arrived today with a book titled ‘Toy Cameras’ by Kevin Meredith (aka lomokev). As I was having (just another) hell-ish day at work, I couldn’t wait til I get home to sip some coffee (no beer!) and enjoy browsing it. It is a very nicely designed book, filled with lots of information about toy cameras as well as lots and lots of photos taken by those cameras.

Ahem! Ermm … I was invited to contribute some photos for the Diana Multi Pinhole camera section! 😀 It feels so awesome to be part of this because in the book … there are tons of super awesome photos by toy camera lovers all over the world. Ermm … I don’t mean to say that mine is one of those but ermm … it is just great to be part of it. 😀

You will also find lots of very very cool photos by the author himself. I got super inspired to go out and snap more photos after a quick browse thru the pages. What I find strange is that cameras like the Lego digital camera and the Lensbaby Composer are included too. I was actually expecting all analogue toy cameras but then the book title didn’t mention anything about analogue cams only … so I guess it was just my fuzzyeyeballs at work (again).

For those who love toy cameras and are interested to grab a copy of this very interesting book … you can check out more info in Kevin’s blog here.

  5. @Ta : Oh cool! You got the signed version and met the man himself eh? Coolness!
