Pots Pans Tagines

Some people call it ‘the plastic fantastic’ and others just call it a toy camera. Holga cameras are simple and fun to use with unpredictable results such as soft focus, vignetting, light leakage, blur and other distortions. Shots taken with Holgas, as well as with other retro film cameras are part of a new style of artistic experimental photography called Lomography.

This shot was taken on my Holga 120GN outside a traditional Berber house in the Ourika Valley, not far from Marrakesh, Morocco.

      Thank you! The colours and textures were what caught my eye, simple ordinary things of everyday use. Really love using the Holga camera though I have to keep taping the back so it doesn’t fall off! I’ve ruined some film that way, very upsetting 😦

    Really nice photo. Love the colour and shapes.
    I’ve always wanted to try a Holga.
    They might be termed “toy camera” but they are a completely valid way of capturing images, for sure!
    Hmmm, I think I need one…
