Lomography asked 25 U.K. artists, illustrators, designers and photographers to pimp their own La Sardina DIY, and we have to admit they put your average digital SLR to shame.
Participants include Pete Fowler, Kid Acne, the Broken Hearts, and Supermundane, and the results are undeniably awesome (we'll skim over our concerns that the aesthetic awesomeness has eclipsed the ability to actually take photos, in some cases). Take a look at the slideshow to see what we mean.
Fancy a Lomo geek-out? Come along! It's totally free!
Where: Lomography Gallery Store East, 117 Commercial Street; 020 74260999; exhibition takes place from January 17 until February 4
