Toy Cameras Make Great Art!


SFCC student Trevor Stratton recently completed an independent study that involved creating a portfolio of fine art black and white prints using a plastic Holga camera. Trevor was able to shoot medium format film and modified the camera to accept 35mm film in a panoramic format. He then used a glass negative carrier to print the negatives from edge to edge, revealing the sprocket holes used by traditional 35mm cameras. The final images really remind us of the photographic relationship we have with place and the beauty of traditional film.
