What is a Krappy Kamera.
Our philosophy at Soho Photo Gallery is that in the hands of any artist great photographs can be made with basic equipment. To explore this talent, we are searching for extraordinary photographs made with lousy lenses. Examples of some Krappy Kameras are the Holga, Diana, Ansco, and pinhole cameras. You can also create your own Krappy Kamera by using your non-Krappy Kamera (e.g. 4x5, SRL, DSLR) and exchanging the lensz with a Krappy lens (e.g.pinhole body cap or Holga-type lens).
Cell phones, disposables and point and shoot cameras are ineligible. Remember, just
because a camera is old and moldy doesn't make it Krappy. The lens is the determining factor.
The juror Russell Joslin is the sole editior and publisher of SHOTS Magazine, an
