Brighton-based photographer Abi Massey has been having a love affair with her Holga camera for the last three years. In her work she takes pictures of the ordinary which get transformed into the extraordinary with the light leaks and blurring that are the characteristics of this toy camera. One of her Flickr contacts sums up her photography perfectly: “Absolutely the most nostalgic tone I’ve ever seen from a Holga. And what else could you ask of a photograph, but to remind you of a time you never really knew?” Check out www.abimassey.com or www.flickr.com/photos/microabi/ for more info.
Wilmington, NC photographer Dana Hawley as a penchant for roller derbys. She took this shot of roller girl “Double Barrel Bambie” at the most rocking Laundromat in the world. During the shoot the members of Cape Fear Roller Girls derby team washed their dirty uniforms, had a beer and listened to some live music. Dana also works as the photographer on film sets, including a recent gig shooting stills for the indie hit The 27 Club.
