This is the deluxe coffee table edition. It contains over 40 Holga 120 S photographs and 10 Zero 2000 pinhole photographs. All pictures have been taken by the author and developed at home. The popular trend in the photographic press and industry is to declare the death of film photography. Unless the photographer uses digital their work is not worth the time of day. Starting out as a set of frank discussions between colleagues over wine and steak during a trying winter, this book looks at the options that are open to the artistic photographer and why film is still a viable option for many photographers who don't want to be left behind in the race to go digital. The Death of Photography uses photographs from the plastic Holga Toy Camera and the Zero 2000 pinhole camera to demonstrate what can be achieved using film, home processing and low tech cameras.

    "Good essay on the merits of film photography" 'The Death of Photography' is an essay about the perceived death of film photography, and the suitability of film photography as medium for fine artists. It deals with the attitudes film photographers face from the ever increasing digital world, and how going back to basics with manual film cameras can be truly liberating. As you would probably guess the majority of this information is based around the impact of the Holga and its 'no frills' feature set. Andrew then goes even more back to basics by discussing pinhole photography. Towards the end of the book there is an excellent guide to semi-stand developing with Rodinal. The presentation of the book is nice, with each page being adorned with a black and white image shot with either a Holga or Zero Image pinhole camera. The images help to space out the essay and add visual interest. Due to the personal nature of the essay, not everyone will agree with the content but I feel... More > it is a worthy read. I often found myself agreeing with the points being raised; although I am biased due to my passion for film photography.< Less
