LoFi is an ongoing diaristic work, where I photograph my everyday experiences with a Holga camera.
A Holga camera is a low-tech camera made of plastic. Some of the characteristics of this camera are that it is prone to imperfections that appear on the images such as light leaks, dust, and scratches. This is due to the fact that the camera body is made of plastic and doesn’t fit together perfectly. So as a photographer I can have control over what I put in the frame, but I can never be sure of the results due to the lack of control over what happens inside the camera body. This means of working became meaningful and poetic to me as I was losing control over my own body after being diagnosed with a progressive autoimmune disease.
Many of my images are often of everyday mundane moments, but they become elevated through the characteristics of the camera. This means of working also helps me to embrace the fact that uncertainty is a natural state of being.
