About the Book
I was given a Holga* for my birthday in August 2006 and have carried it around with me ever since.
This book contains over 100 favourite photographs taken by me between August 2006 and March 2009.
Buy this lovely 114 page book, sit down with a cup of tea and enjoy looking at square photographs of cows, cars, trucks and things that go. Broken glass, decay, rust, concrete statues, doors and doves. Sheds, shacks and boats from Dungeness. People. Old people, young people. Trees and nature and nice things.
*The Holga is very cheap, plastic, medium format film camera. Made in China, its poor construction means that no two Holga's leave the factory quite the same. Light can often leak onto the film and the poor lens causes blur and other distortions. No aperture setting and no real control over the focusing, add to its unique charm.
