Self portrait of M. C. Roman (a.k.a. Mr. Holga)

M. C. Roman (a.k.a. Mr. Holga) is our first published author. Roman is a painter, printmaker and avid photographer. He specializes in antiquated film photography using Holga cameras, otherwise known as toy or plastic cameras. The medium format film used in Holga cameras creates a beautiful and sometimes unexpected resulting photograph.

M. C. Roman is the owner and managing editor of Dallas Art News, which he started in 2009. Roman is a graduate of Southern Methodist University. He can usually be found rummaging around museums and galleries all over Texas.

M. C. Roman’s first book is Death by Holga: 11.22.63. He already has plans for follow-up books to round out his Death by Holga series.
