Captured: Kim Høltermand17 February 2010
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.
