Most photographers aim for high resolution, pin-sharp imagery: if one reads the photographic press, whether analogue or digital, the discussion is always about what will deliver the best quality - the latest camera body or a better quality lens, a certain film or superior processing capability... I confess I have the opposite inclination. I love how light thickens or flares through cheap plastic lenses, and colours shift so unexpectedly that everyday places are rendered strangely dreamlike. The pictures below were made on a Chinese plastic camera bought for £10 from a Sheffield photographic shop; similar ones are now made by Lomo, but cost a whole lot more...
