Phoney Diana Diary
Project info

"Phoney Diana Diary" is a companion piece of sorts to the series, "Whores & Madonnas." Taken with my phone while working on that project, the photos here weren't originally conceived as forming a project in itself. They were just snapshots taken during my visits to the Dominican Republic that formed a personal diary of impressions, views mediated by the desires and affinities brought by an outsider to a place.

The title refers to the fact they are fake Diana toy camera shots, taken on a phone, using the Vignette app. I'm a big fan of the app because it does a very good job of replicating the look I got when shooting the Diana toy camera, which was my entry point back into photography after many years absence and that continues to influence how I see the world.
