Susanne Friedrich

I've been shooting at night with Susanne Friedrich for about four years. I first met her on an overnight trip to Angel Island, sponsored by the Nocturnes. While most of the photographers were showing off their Hassleblad's and high-end 35mm cameras, Susanne was carrying around a pair of $20 Holgas (medium format "toy" cameras) wrapped up with electrical tape. Looking through a Holga lens is a bit like looking through the bottom of a glass Coke bottle. Their manufacturing defects are their charm.

Although Susanne uses a Hasselblad for her professional work, she often uses the Holgas to create some beautiful night photographs with a pictorialist.

Susanne is a professional portrait photographer and web designer. She has designed websites for many night photographers, including the Nocturnes and Lance Keimig's TheNightSkye.
