interview from LCA+ AMIGOS
How long have you been a Lomographer (or are you new to this whole thing?)
Since 2002 in a website. But I have my own lomo camera in 2004 spring. Its the supersampler.
(heard about it back in 2002 from a website, got my own lomo camera in spring2004, it was a super sampler)
Describe the LC-A+ in five words.
Small, friendly, functional, powerful, funny
The strangest, funniest, or hands-down greatest photographic/Lomographic encounter that you have ever had..
1. Lomo helps me to meet my fiancee, well be the Lomo Couple!!!
2. I almost got killed when taking pictures in Shanghai.
3. Im witnessing the changes of my living place in these years, in future my children or some younger people can see the changes of this city through my pictures.
If your photos shown here could have a soundtrack of three songs, what would they be (song title & artist please).
I have a dream - ABBA
Release me - Oh Laura
Misery - Soul Asylum
Youve got black & white, slide, and color shots in your Amigo gallery. Which format is your favorite and why?
My favorite format is slide. Because its my original intention of lomo.
If you could be anywhere, doing anything, right now > where would it be and what would you do?
Making a better life for my family. I do love my family.
Taiwan looks like a fascinating place! Tell us a few secrets about Taiwan that NO one from outside your country knows
San-Hsia Old Street and Tamsui waterfront, if visiting to Taiwan, you must no miss to experience the most traditional cultures of Taiwan which is including architectures, humanities and authentic cuisine. In San-Hsia Old Street and Tamsui waterfront, you can completely feel the most original taste of Taiwan!
What future do you see for analog photography?
What do you think sets it apart from digital?
Im very worry about the cease of films. Production of films reducing every year, until we have to pay more, by the way, I believe analog photography cant completely replaced by digital photography. I would only use digital camera while Im working, most of the time, my LCA+ follows me wherever I go, and this causes the jealousy of my digital camera.
The one person (living or deceased) who you would most like to photograph
Andy Warhol, Twiggy Lawson and my family.
Your advice to future LC-A+ shooters.
There are too much of possibilities by playing with LCA+, be brave to try whatever films and the ways of taking pictures. Be creative, you would make your LCA+ (or LCA) becomes the most perfect camera in the World! Talk less; imagine more!
