Emory Asylum Briarcliff Campus, Holga 120N with Fuji PRO800Z film

I got my first Holga in early 2006 (have 3 now, 4 if you include my Holga pinhole). It was the first of quite a few “crappy” plastic cameras that I now have. I love the imperfections that they lend to photos. I rarely go out on a shoot without taking at least one of my plastic cameras.

This image is one of my earlier Holga images and to me provided a result that a more sophisticated camera couldn’t match.

I’ve been shooting with lo-fi cameras for about 4-5 years now. I shoot medium format almost exclusively, with everything from an Imperial Mark XII to a Kowa Six, but the majority of my images are shot with either a Brownie Hawkeye or a Holga. Coming from a high-fire ceramics background (where you can rarely predict with 100% certainty what’s going to come out of the kiln), I really enjoy the unpredictability of lo-fi cameras and the delicate beauty of the so-called “imperfections” in the final images.

A bit about me & my Holga 🙂

During the introductory year at the Foto Academie in Amsterdam we had to choose a “special project”. I chose to document the disappearing “corner cafes” in the Amsterdam Jordaan neighborhood. The Jordaan being originally a (day-)laborer’s neighborhood where a lot of the little money people earned was spent on drinking alcohol, it had a (proverbial) “cafe on every corner”. Nowadays the area is a very trendy neighborhood to live in with property prices that are sky-rocketing high. As a consequence most of the old corner cafes have disappeared. I found that there were only six remaining. I decided to shoot this series on film with a camera that would sort of reflect the atmosphere of those cafes in days gone-by. So I went and bought my first Holga.
I have been using it since, plus a whole range of other ‘lo-fi’ cameras, on a regular basis during the last two and a half years.
