Love Is A Stranger The design of this camera facilitates chance, to imagine the outcome of an image and shoot without looking, aided by an intuitive knowledge of how optics work rather than composing for precision through a view finder. This style allowed certain freedoms and resulted in many images. Each negative collects two exposures and the juxtapositions are mostly random. The sequence on a complete roll of film is always a surprise. Being small and robust, taking it everywhere quickly became automatic. Darragh Shanahan
