Holga Circus




The photos that Dutch based photographer Xiaoxiao Xu (Wenzhou, China 1984) takes with her Holga are based on very intuitive actions. She photographs whatever catches her eye. Xiaoxiao and her Holga – a medium-format 120 film toy camera made in China, known for its low-fidelity aesthetic – are inseparable, resulting in an on-going series of estranged and poetic images. Currently Xiaoxiao is visiting her country of birth to continue the Holga project. This part is named Holga circus.
