I’m a fine-art photographer based in France.
Photography has been eating my mind for many years now.
I use different toycams (some are vintage ones), filters and personal mixed textures.
I’m not a lo-fi purist, I always try to frame 🙂
My Holga helps me to expect the unexpected and to find art in daily life.
Seems I had to travel all the way to Ecuador and then to the Andeas in order to find a pig that would stand still long enough for me to photograph….I like pigs! Actually they are a lot nicer than a lot of people I know! Whats not to like!

I am a magazine and editorial photographer in Toronto, I was covering an art show for my magazine and came across a booth of framed prints(120 format) all printed with the edge of the neg carrier filed away. Started talking to the fellow about his work and he explained they were shot with a holga. I new of the camera but never gave them any thought…but those prints just stuck in my head. I searched out a place to get one and finally did. Now I have three, and a holga TLR on order. My editor likes the prints so much I carry the holga with me on assignments and shoot with it as well. Hey, if David Burnett can win the 2001 top prize at the White House News Photographers’Association Eye’s of History Contest….who knows??? Love the holga!!!
