Buy it now: Leica Sofort instant camera



Leica Sofort instant camera

It turns out Mr DRG and I were both thinking of getting each other the new Leica Sofort instant camera for Christmas. Clearly a sign we should buy one and share it. This is the camera for the person who has everything – rather unnecessary but lots of fun and very good-looking.

I tried one out last night at a Mr Porter Christmas event. If you’ve ever tried a Polaroid or a Fujifilm instant camera, you’ll know how addictive this is. In the age of camera phones it’s even exotic, which I realise sounds preposterous coming from a child of the seventies eighties. You can either use Fuji Instax Mini film or special Leica film which has a different quality to the pictures.

These have just hit the shops and are available from Nordstrom, Harrison, The Photographers’ Gallery (around £229), and the Leica shops*. And soon Harrods, Jessops, Mr Porter and Net-a-Porter. Read more here.

Quote of the day: Willy Vanderperre

“You felt that every night you could go out, and you could have a party. That’s always good. It’s about where the music, where the nightlife, where the arts are at that point. If you have a little, condensed group of people that have the same mindset, something will happen. It will attract other people.” (more…)

'SHELF LIFE: The Ornaments Are Talking To Me' by Mark Clarke is at The Bowes Museum
I’m terribly guilty of being a bit lazy when it comes to travelling out of London, but I feel I should remedy that with a couple of promising out-of-town exhibitions.

At my book launch, Iain R Webb told me about the exhibition SHELF LIFE: The Ornaments Are Talking To Me (above), that has just opened at the Bowes Museum in County Durham. Assemblage artist Mark Clarke presents his modern day memento mori as a bittersweet response to his mother’s battle with dementia. I love any form of assemblage, collage or mixed media, possibly a reflection of my own hoarding collecting tendencies. (more…)
