Black and White Holga Multiple Exposures
Black and white multiple exposure photographs created with a plastic toy camera called a Holga using medium format 120 B/W film. In 1997 when I was gifted my first Helga plastic toy camera from a graphic designer friend I worked with. I really didn’t know anything about the camera and how to operate it. Excited about getting started with my new gift. The first couple rolls I photographed a moving train with graffiti on it. Instead of looking at the camera when I advanced the film, I arbitrarily twisted the dial to the next exposure. When I developed my film from that day, I was amazed at the results. A whole new style of using that camera emerged… I called it HolgaShop since I was essential fusing images together in the camera like you would do on the computer with Adobe Photoshop.
