The Holga camera was initially introduced to the Chinese public in 1982 as an inexpensive camera for everyday use. Shortly after its introduction, it became an underground artistic phenomena. Using the Holga is an exercise in breaking free from dependence on technology, precision and control. The slight softness of the images, vignetting and random light leaks produce dream-like, one-of-a kind images.
The Holga 120WPC is a Wide Angle Pinhole camera and shoots 120 size film in unique panoramic sizes – 6×9 cm, or 6×12 cm format for a super wide angle view. This lensless body produces infinite depth of field, meaning everything in the scene will be reasonably sharp and detailed, while still preserving the soft edges for which Holga photos are known.
