About the Artist

Ashley is a photographer based out of Austin, Texas. She often works with Holgas, toy cameras made out of plastic. Holga's cheap construction and convex-concave lens produces pictures with natural distortions, as light leaks and other imperfections contribute to soft-edged, dreamlike images. She also deliberately manipulates the film by heating it, or cross-processing it during development.

Shooting successfully with a Holga takes considerable skill and patience. There are only 12 frames on each roll of film, so Ashley must be astute and deliberate in her work. Because the Holga is fairly primitive with a fixed f-stop and shutter speed she must carefully read the light before taking each photograph.
