Alessandro Reginato, 24yrs Italy
I am an architecture student in venice, and become interested in analog photography after i found my dad’s olympus om1. Might be funny but i discovered about the Holga using an iPhone app called “camera bag” that features some “vintage” filters. I really loved the square format and started googling here and there to find out something about the medium format film. Ended buying a Holga from China for a very cheap price, then i walked in at the local photo lab and asked for a 120 roll, they had it, an ilford bw. Shooting with a Holga is really a spiritual experience, you find yourself thinking deeply before every shot (i do not agree that much with lomography slogans), it’s just about your eye, no settings to adjust. Holga really brings photography to its primitive being.
