  • I know that the photographer's eye, but not camera is the key to a good photo, but I always find it special to shoot on the Holga plastic camera with 120 films and the results are very different from photos I take with the DSLR camera. It also gives a nice old time feeling shooting on film and have to wait for days to see the images. I do like to handle the negatives, cut them and scan.

    For some reason I always feel like shooting on my Holga when I listen to P.J Harvey’s excellent music. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that Maria Mochnacz, who works closely with Harvey to develop the visual style of each album, only uses film and toy cameras and I like the artwork of the albums as well as the music.

    Photos from the Holga are unique and so is P.J. Harvey’s music. Perhaps they are a perfect match......

    PS. Some of you may have noticed that I am slow Cowbirder now, the summers up here are short and bright so I try to spend as much time as possible outdoor these days.
