I have many camera, but I most often use LCA+ RL, Diana F+, Belair X6/12 & Lubitel.
For me the advantage of a toy camera is its dreamlike effect. This type of camera produces unrealistic results because they saturate the colors and with its filter/s able to bring dream like effect to the images. In addition, the practice of double exposure can be easily done/created with them. As my work is based on a dream, a toy camera is my perfect tool.
It was through my education (multi-artist practices) that pushed me to search for my favorite medium. I started doing digital photography, and then one day I discovered the Diana F +. A camera that offered me an opportunity to do a larger field to work with.
Alchemy was also an interesting concept for me. To merge it with photography so to speak . As my work is about conveying a dreamlike atmosphere, chemistry with its ethereal and sometimes unpredictable aspect attracted me the most. In a sense, analog photography works the same way as alchemy. It is both palpable as a film, but also intangible and unpredictable during the developing process. It is alchemical, because trying to capture the dream subconsciously is a quest. It's like turning lead into gold, to transform reality into dream.
The important thing is to set a goal. The camera is a kind of prosthesis: a continuity of your body. How will you make use of it?
