The Japanese camera maker has teamed up with urban artist Susie ‘Suzko’ Lowe, fashion photographer Jay McLaughlin and Harrods to offer a strictly limited number of handpainted special edition cameras, complete with matching Vespa scooter.

Available exclusively through Harrods in London, each ‘Art Edition’ camera has been individually hand-painted by Susie ‘Suzko’ Lowe (ensuring that no two are the same), and has its matching Vespa Motor scooter and crash helmet.

It comes with a one-one-one photography lesson with street photographer Jay McLaughlin who was brought in by Olympus to document the customization process and to help decide the camera’s specification and accessories.

As well as a unique, hand-painted body, each camera also comes with a second, stock camera body for everyday use and one of each compatible Olympus-made lens currently available.

Harrods and Olympus have not confirmed how many Art Editions will be created but they have stressed that this is a strictly limited collection. The Art Edition goes on sale from Thursday, exclusively at Harrods for £16,000 (about US$25,000).
