CSD 2009

The photographs from this year's Christopher Street Day, a.k.a. Gay Pride, are up now and available from the toycamera page. They are all black & white and shot with the Diana+ camera.

Holga Wide Angle Pinhole

A new camera joined my collection of "low fi" equipment, this time around a Holga 120WPC, which is a wide angle pinhole camera (i.e. it's got no lens). I took it out for a spin to Berlin's main station, and the first pics turned out really well. I used the 6x8 format, next time around I'll be trying the 6x12 format, and colour.

I've posted a selection of the pics on flickr. Enjoy and let me know what you think.

Addendum: here is a very good review of the Holga 120WPC at Holgablog.

"Be Berlin" Review

The "Be Berlin" exhibition in the Luxembourg Embassy is now closed, but there are indications that the exhibition may be on at the Berlin City Hall ("Rotes Rathaus") in the fall.

Meanwhile, here is a link to a review of the exhibition published in a Luxembourg newspaper. The article is in German.
