Holga, A Video Clip By Bratislava That Is Pure Nostalgia

Sometimes our memories need a little help, a sort of backup that helps us keep the best time of our lives. Analogue photography is a beautiful way to do it. Watch this clip that is named after one of my favorite cameras, and showcases a cameo of another favorite camera.

Imagine a photo walk in places that you already know or never went to before. Think about a song. Just watch this video clip by Bratislava.

Here, our beloved Diana F+ (with a Rolleicord, I guess) makes a special guest appearance. It has a vintage look, like a picture of our childhood – sometimes I think that the past were in these colors, really.

A nostalgic feeling, a good memory. Whether it’s from your childhood or your last trip, the emotion is still the same.

It’s a song from Carne Record released in 2012. The video was directed by Erick Donate and Augusto Carmo.

“Holga” is about memories. Our protagonist sits in a bar, orders a beer and remembers the last trips he had. Remember when he went to Para, and the pictures that go through one’s head, inevitably through memory, are linked to pictures he took there in the center of Santarem with friends. After, he remembers another trip to Montevideo where he travel without a camera. And interestingly, he did not remember “less” of travel. The memory of the places was vivid, dancing in his head. And then he wonders which of the memories was more valuable, rich.

Listen it, watch it, but mostly, REMEMBER! It’s worth the visit; the band is cool.

Bratislava mixes different styles and lyrics that could be taken from a book, putting together the normal day with absurd and surreal and fantastic universes. In short: a pouch of soteropaulistano leather and drive full of stamps, calaveras, and pennants.

Listen and download the song at Bratislava’s BandCamp.

    So, I saw a Diana and a Flexaret, but no Holga. Very interesting place though. I'd like to walk and photograph there.
