“Instax cameras are taken as toys and I’m here to disagree about that,” shared São Paulo-based photographer Taylor Ponto with us during a chat a couple of months ago. Knowing all too well how Instax cameras are marketed as “fun” and “stylish,” we can see how they are often mistaken as playthings instead of tools…

The Holga Doesn’t Have to Be Dead
