Brooklyn Botanic Garden: A Year of Diana, by Judy Sidonie Tillinger, features a selection of images taken at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden using several Diana cameras. The Dianas, a medium format toy camera manufactured in Asia in the 1960's, were sold for next to nothing and were often given away as promotional gifts. The cheap plastic lens and the imperfections of the materials cause light leaks and arbitrary flaws in the negative that lend the images their characteristic otherworldliness.
