Baguio City Crucifix

What is it about square photographs that makes them so interesting? Is it because you can chuck the Rule of Thirds out the window and place your subject smack dab in the middle of the frame? Is it because there is horizontal and vertical balance to the image? Is it because square photos are native to film, specifically 120 film, and not to digital?

Here’s a particularly haunting photo taken in Baguio City, the summer capital of the Philippines. This was captured by Georwyn Victor, a communications student who has been dabbling in photography since 2007 and lomography specifically since April of last year.  He shoots with a Holga, a Supersampler, and a Kidzlab DIY pinhole camera. 

The rest of this set may be found here, and from there you can easily find his other photo sets.  His blog, which likewise displays many of his shots, may be found here.
