i am in love with a girl named holga
It has been a couple weeks since I started posting my work and I feel it is time to do a little homage to one of my favorite types of cameras: the plastic toy variety. Sure, they have become somewhat trendy as of late (entirely overpriced and available at urban outfitters everywhere), but I bought my first holga years ago at the recommendation of my good friend Sarah Dowd… and have been in love ever since. Film was what got me into photography in the first place (I was entirely resistant of this digital stuff for YEARS)… and there is something irresistable about this medium format little creature, held together by gaffers tape — the double exposures, the light leaks, the soft focus. I fall in love again every roll of film I have processed and see what new happy accident or curious gem that awaits me. Here are a few of my favorites from my dear holga.
