Today we’re kicking off a new feature: “Captured” photo series featuring artists from around the world. We choose an artist, send them a camera and film, they take the pictures and we develop and post them here on TSA. It’s sort of a photo interview—a way to get to know some of our favorite artists.

The first artist in our series is Kim Høltermand, a photographer based in Værløse, Denmark. Kim is a designer turned photographer known for his unique style of architecture, nature, and night photography. We sent Kim a Diana F+ camera and a couple rolls of film and he produced this great set of photos for us.

Thoughts from Kim:

The images of the horses and the nature are shot where I live – and just as I was leaving the horses it started snowing – it was a nice moment. It has been a great challenge to use the Diana F+ – not knowing the outcome made me think even more about getting the right composition, focal distance etc. made me “think” more I guess. And a few times I thought “hey – did I forget to remove the lens hood ???, did I forward the film ???” stuff like that. Looking at the outcome of this project has really opened my eyes for the possibility of getting me a Diana F+ camera – I do own a Holga which i bought in Barcelona but haven’t had the time to play with it, but being part of this project has definitely triggered the inner experimental photography child.

Special thanks to Lomo for providing the camera and film. Also to Phoenix Imaging for the processing.

The concept behind this is as old as the hills and almost as dull as the resulting images.
I can’t be the only one to think this – surely?

Sorry this was dull for you, Lester. We had fun making it. Any suggestions for how to make the series better?
