double exposure w Holga camera, Oakland Cemetery, Atlanta

This is part of my Southern Spirits project, and is shot with a Holga camera, a weird 80’s era Chinese camera that had wonky controls and was never quite light-tight – experienced Holga users would cover the camera in duct tape to seal it – so you wound up with crazy, unpredictable double exposures and light streaks across the frame, and you literally never knew what you would get. I think it suits this picture really well – it’s a child’s grave in Oakland cemetery in Atlanta (children’s monuments often include small angels and flowers) that bled into another shot of the sky.
