It was a great rags-to-riches story, set in the early 60s - an all-plastic camera by Lomography, the Diana, found her way into the market, marketed as a novelty item. It wasn't long before she took the photography world by storm, winning people over with her twisted, haphazard effects, ranging from multiple exposures to light leaks.
