Soho Photo Gallery has announced the winner of its 2019 Krappy Kamera competition as Lisa Lindamood. A native Tennessean, she has been creating handmade photos for two decades. Marky Kauffmann was awarded second, while Denise Moore came in third.

What Is Krappy Kamera
Our philosophy at Soho Photo Gallery is that in the hands of any artist great photographs can be made with basic equipment. To explore this talent, we are searching for extraordinary photographs made with lousy lenses.  Examples of some Krappy Kameras are the Holga, Diana, Ansco, and pinhole cameras. You can also create your own Krappy Kamera by using your non-Krappy Kamera (e.g. 4×5, SLR, DSLR) and exchanging the lens with a Krappy Lens (e.g. pinhole body cap or Holga-type lens). Cell phones, disposables and point and shoot cameras are ineligible. Remember, just because a camera is old and moldy doesn’t make it Krappy. The lens is the determining factor.

The competition was juried by Michelle Bates, internationally renowned for her Holga imagery since 1991 and author of Plastic Cameras: Toying with Creativity, an extensive look at the use and history of toy cameras.

Soho Photo Gallery will be exhibiting photos from the competition through the end of March.
