Born in the analogue world of the later half of the 80s (Gen Y) and with great musical determination, her life involves music as well as photography. She has published 2 photo albums in the past, and has organized her own photo exhibition last summer. She is Rockmui, and she's determined to think about her dreams till the end!
Her daily life involves carrying analogue cameras. She has a special love for films because films leave her with a unique feeling. She only uses one or two cameras to take photos of her life and during travel, so her photo albums and her articles together records her life as if it is her diary. This became the basis of her 2 photo albums “失．逃 Rockmuilogy” (“Lost. Escape Rockmuilogy”) and “Rock Me Demo”.
I appreciate Rockmui, and even see her as a model student for the Gen Y. From the start of her career as part of the singing group “At 17” and then gradually becoming more independent as a guitarist through hard work and passion for music, she has achieved so much even at this young age. Among these are: being the only designated female guitarist for all pop concerts in Hong Kong, sold out for her first music album “Set Off”, becoming a composer, lyricist, producer as well as photographer. Her passionate and success in following her dreams are great, but her determination in following her dream is also something which should be admired by all Gen Y / people born in the 80s!

In New York City, winter has been harsh and long, the nights long and cold, and shooting outside is not fun anymore. So when the Lomo'Instant Boston Edition hit the shelves this week and the new Splitzer arrived at the Lomography Gallery Store New York, we decided to do a round of light painting portraits instead of sunny ones.
There is nothing better than a photo shot at the perfect moment. Henri Cartier-Bresson's principle on "The Decisive Moment" is a principle that we should still follow to this day. A perfectly-timed photo creates impact, whether it's one of a friend jumping into the pool or a couple emerging from the ceremony on their wedding day. For this rumble, we want to see that breathtaking moment, shot at the perfect time. And you showed us what it's like to be on time.
What exactly do I feel while waiting for my Lomo'Instant photos to be developed? I have to say I get a mix of "Surprise me, dear Lomo!" but also some "Did I capture it as I wanted?" kind of thought. No matter the school of thought, with the Splitzer you can add so many cool effects to your photos you'll definitely embrace it!
You might remember experimental philosopher Jonathon Keats for the CenturyCamera, his ambitious project which involved installation of 100 ultra-long-exposure cameras in and around Berlin, Germany "to continuously document 100 years of municipal growth and decay for scrutiny and judgment by future generations" between 2014 and 2114. But today, Keats goes a step further and begins yet another groundbreaking and unprecedented project with the Millennium Camera.
