Holga Jen

For me, photography is a way to express myself. When I photograph I feel a sense of release ~ it’s almost like therapy. My goal is to use my imagination to create a new perspective of reality, something elusive and evocative. Capturing a moment on film is more about instinct than thinking for me, and sometimes I don’t even realize what my connection is with the image until after I see the final result. I also love simplicity, which is why I rely mainly on simple, cheap, film-based cameras such as Holgas and pinholes. I do not get distracted by technical issues, and can focus more on my vision. Currently I am exploring the freedom of a “no rules” approach. I want to challenge my own perspective, as well as my viewer’s, through bold distortion, blur and motion.
