I am enamored with the early photographers - Steichen, Stieglitz, Doisneau, Kertesz, etc. and they have led me down my black and white/film path. I use my wonderful plastic Holga TLR film cameras which are square format and the whimsy of the unexpected lighting and focus variations lend themselves to my artistic vision. I also use my iPhone with various apps to recreate the same vintage look. To me, the ancient beauty of the Old World begs for this treatment.
