Once I dreamed I was, 2008

I love this self-portrait made with the Holga. It makes me think of a movie star of the 1920s. They were the most beautiful ever, weren't they? Clara Bow, Loretta Young, Claudette Colbert etc.


Jenifer says:
"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."

It is a very good point of view. - Mr Urbano
