Soho Photo Gallery, New York City’s longest-running cooperative photography gallery, proudly operates the annual Krappy Kamera® competition.

What is a 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, SRL, 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.

Krappy Kamera is open to the public. The next competition will be announced on our website, email and social media.
