Holga Toy Camera Fine Art Photography
My fine art photography produced with the Holga Toy Plastic Camera is awarded and exhibited through international juried competitions. While the camera produces a unique effect, my images still succeed on the ability to capture moments, something I received numerous awards for during my years as a photojournalist and wedding photojournalist.
In fact, while reviewing the manuscript for a digital photography textbook by Dennis Curtain, he asked to feature my work – not my digital work but my Holga work! Why? He said, “I liked what you said, that it’s ‘always about the image.'”
I first understood this when I captured Boys At The Circus. It was my first successfull attempt with this unique, funky camera. I saw the boys and I saw myself and my boyhood friends at the local annual fair near Boston. It really drew me. And the response from others is exactly what I felt; I knew I had found how I would create with this camera. I have a series titled, “Dreams of our Childhoods” that focuses on this and it’s been exhibited at the Center for Fine Art Photography.
Critics and other photographers have referred to my work as a “glimpse of a dream” and “after images” of our dreams and memories.
My work is available for purchase as framed Giclée art, gallery-wrapped canvas metal. The images are also available for stock licensing in commercial and editorial usage. The galleries in the menu will take you to Fine Art America for viewing and investing.
