This book sums up my 6-year love affair with the medium-format Holga camera. I was given it by the Lomographic Society International back in 2003 and have never let go of it since. We have been everywhere together: from Russia to South Africa, from Valencia to Lechlade-on-Thames. It is a square format miracle, colorful and full of life. You can enjoy this book yourself or give it to that someone special in your life. It’s truly inspirational! It can teach you that you don't necessarily need an expensive digital camera to make beautiful photographs. Made to be perused and enjoyed!
