About the DESIGN

Statement: Transforming “La Sardina” into  “La Zebra”

The “L” shape of the camera resembles the neck and trunk of an animal and it catches my eyes. I choose ‘Zebra’ as  its body proportion just perfectly matches the camera. Also, the anatomy of La Sardina can represent the core parts of a zebra:  flash lamp as the head, strap as the tail, tripod as the legs, and we use a ‘hairy’ fabric with the signature pattern of black & white stripes. You may not know but Zebra is a very first member featured in UU’s animal collection. 

About the WORKSHOP

The design of La Sardina was so well received at the exhibition and Lomography HK has invited Wendy to run a DIY workshop on the making of the Animal Flash. DIY is an art of creation, innovation and personalization. In the workshops, Wendy will explore with you the other possibilities of the use of the flash cover.
