Film by Eric Minh Swenson. Music by James Lucchesi and Annie Brooks
In 1982, T.M. Lee created the Holga. His vision was to inspire millions of Chinese to create lasting memories with this simple and affordable camera, at a time when photography was an expensive luxury in China that few could indulge in. Today, more than two decades later, the Holga has inspired millions throughout the world with the unique imagery it creates in the hands of the inspired artist. The Holga has become a classic. In its many manifestations it bridges the span between traditional photography and modern visual art.
