Holga-mania! A new book, an interview, and quirky photos.
The Holga Queen, Michelle Bates, has just published a new book featuring the photographic work of 33 diverse artists who all use inexpensive plastic Holga cameras to make their art. The book, Plastic Cameras, Toying with Creativity, is a treasure trove of inspiration, with a healthy dose of how-to advice and encouragement. (How to tape up light leaks in the plastic cases, etc.).
For Lens Culture, she talks about her passion for Holgas in a lively audio interview, and shares 24 of her own images that work wonderfully well in the quirky signature style of these cult-inducing plastic cameras.
