"the things that are close to you,
are the things you can photograph the best,
and unless you photograph what you love,
you’re not going to make good art."

Sally is one of my favorite photographers of all time, and ever since I read a few of her photography books, interviews, and saw a recent documentary called what remains, I'll forever hold this quote near and dear to my heart.

These black and white holga images were taken near Lancaster,PA- my hometown. Sometimes I really love shooting with the holga because I know flat out that the images won't be perfect, there will be light leaks, imperfections, and flaws. I think it's important to take a break from the digital world and pick up a film camera every now and then. Develop it in the dark room, get my hands dirty. Patiently wait as the first image is created-- meticulously burning and dodging areas and cropping in closer to create the finished photograph. Film slows me down, and it reminds me that it's okay to.

Iron & Wine- The Trapeze Swinger is the type of music I listen to when creating images like this. I think it's extremely important to have musical inspiration!
