Greenwood through a Holga

Today’s guest is the author of my favorite Charlottesville blog. Simply put, Sean Santiago is just too cool. His impeccable style and quality writing make KanKan visually stunning, a source of inspiration but also intelligent and witty which is a unique combo you don’t often see on lifestyle blogs. His photographs make me wonder “where was THAT taken?”. I love his fresh take and cutting edge style. Sean, thanks for contributing!

The ladies of The Charlotte and I share a love for vintage photography and the countryside, so when Stephanie asked if I might be interested in contributing a guest post I couldn’t help thinking I’d found a perfect home for these images. Like most people I shoot digital, but visiting my father at his pottery studio in Greenwood one weekend was the perfect opportunity to test out my recently purchased film camera, the Holga 120N. The resulting images celebrate not only the romantic imperfections of analog image-making, but the simple beauty of our local community.
