SOMERVILLE, Mass. (AP) - In an era of iPhones and digital selfies, some photographers are celebrating the lowest of lo-fi technology: the toy camera.

The Somerville Toy Camera Festival features photos taken on all manner of toy cameras: from the classic Holga and Diana to the lensless pinhole, the most primitive of primitive cameras.

The goal is to turn what at first seems like limitations - the lack of autofocus - into possibilities - the use of double-exposures and the graininess of actual film.

Festival events include a discussion focused on ways to make modifications to existing toy cameras.

The festival is located at three locations in Somerville: the Nave Gallery at 155 Powderhouse Boulevard; the Nave Annex at 53 Chester Street; and Washington St Art at 321 Washington Street.
