Instagram owes much to the Holga. The inexpensive plastic camera originated in China in the 1980s and has since become a cult-classic for its so-called imperfections, which include vignetting and light leaks. This month at Penny Cluse Café in Burlington, photographer Jordan Douglas presents silver-gelatin prints of images shot with the $25 camera. The black-and-white photos are a mixture of street scenes and rural tableau that focus on the geometry of everyday life. The images evoke nostalgia for the simplicity of just walking around with a camera — no hashtags required.
