a few words from Andrea…..
“I was given a Holga. It belonged to friend who moved on from this life and his wife passed it on to me.
It’s a dreary damp day, the mist is hanging low and the midges are biting hard. Hard and painfully. Painful hard as it happens. I take a peek outside and retreat back inside to root around for the midge-hood. “Darn, I’ll be looking like a tourist with this thing on” I’m thinking to myself as I wander self-consciously along the village looking like a weirdly contorted almost human being. In my hand is a lump of plastic, from China it came in a form vaguely like a camera. I love this lump of plastic, now wrapped in sticky tape to keep excess light out. And that’s why I’ve ventured out on the dreary midge-ridden day.
I press a little button to let some light in through the lens-like hole. And I hope the magic will happen. Because somehow, just sometimes, when I put the film from the camera through chemicals, a wonderful image appears. Just sometimes. And that’s what I like; sometimes some magic happens and an image speaks to me.”
