John Whitledge

1. Holga Camera. "I was extremely heartbroken when I found out that Polaroid was discontinuing their film. Rather than sulk, I took the advice of my friend Jon Rose and bought a Holga. If you can't stop the change, might as well embrace it."
2. Waris. "Waris is pretty much the most stylish guy I know, and he makes incredible jewelry."
3. Gonzo By Hunter S. Thompson. (Only 3,000 copies produced). "This book is absolutely insane and one of my all-time favorites."
John Whitledge is the designer for Trovata.
