Taking Off is a collection of random images. These are photos created over the past six years, while getting acquainted with the Holga toy camera. Among these are urban, scenic, and whimsical images captured on an array of films, processed with a variety of development formulas, and laughed at during the titling phase.
This collection represents the first of many adventures into the world of HolgART!
Randy Jennings aka HolgART, began his career as a live music photographer, a venture that made a name for him and created an impressive, much publicized portfolio. His photographs have appeared in various publications such as Rolling Stone, American Photographer, and Guitar Legends and have been used in association with VH-1, Fender Guitars and numerous music anthologies. His classic images are much sought after today. Departing from this vast experience in traditional photography, he often prefers working with more uncommon forms of the medium, such as plastic toy cameras. Thus begins his love affair with the “Holga.” He has exhibited in group and solo shows nationally. His works have appeared in Light Leaks magazine. Most recently, Jennings work was selected as part of the Krappy Kamera® XIII International Juried Competition.
