This series by Joshua Martens was taken in Miami Beach through the lens of a vintage Argus Lumar 75mm. Then he used several decaying textures to give the photos a look and feel of an old photo that might be locked away in your grandparents attic or found at a flea market.

TTV stands for Through the Viewfinder. A TTV set up is comprised of a bottom camera that 'sees' the image and shows it in its viewfinder, and a top camera that records that image. The key element in TTV is that the viewfinders of old pseudo TLRs (such as a Kodak Duaflex, an Argus 75, an Ensign Ful-Vue or an Ansco Rediflex) have a convex glass lens as viewfinder. These viewfinder lenses have a gradual and smooth distortion away from the center.

The TTV movement is a rebellion against the sterility of many images created by digital technology. The grime and dust, as well as the distortions of the old bubble-shaped viewfinder exert a charm. The square framing also forces the photographer to compose the image differently.
