My first camera was a Kodak Pocket Instamatic, which had film cartridge instead of rolls. I took it with me on holiday when I was ten years old. Together with my sister, I built a hut in the forest. It was clearly the best hut we had ever built together. The roof was covered with soft green moss. At the entrance we made a very realistic fireplace. I made a series of six photos. My sister is in the background. My sister also took a photo of me in the hut.
