Meet Our Holiday LomoAmigo Isabel_mebarak!

11

For our special Holiday edition of LomoAmigo, we'd like to introduce you to Isabel Mebarak - a Lomographer from Spain.

REAL NAME: Isabel Mebarak
COUNTRY: Spain

Could you begin by telling us a little about yourself – Maybe an interesting fact people might not know about you?
Well, my parents have always been photography lovers, and from an early age they would let bring me to the development laboratory to play with the chemicals and discover this amazing world. I guess that’s what has always attracted me to photography.

How long have you been into Lomography and how did you discover it?
Some years ago, maybe 4, a friend of mine showed me her Holga and Robot 3 cameras and didn’t hesitate to get myself a Supersampler … and from that moment I’m addicted! But the definitive push was on last year’s August when I started again with increased strength.

What are your plans for the winter holidays?
Besides buying myself the LC-Wide, a trip to Barcelona to spend the Holidays with my boyfriend and, I expect, cross my fingers, to see and take pictures of snow.

Any New Year’s resolutions for 2012?
To be able to take better pictures and get myself a “Horizon Perfekt”: http://shop.lomography.com/horizon-perfekt hehehehe… oh, and travel to unknown places!

If you could recommend one movie and one song to everyone, what would they be?
Mmmmm… it’s hard… only one? Mmmm…“Moulin Rouge” and “A Hard Life” by Queen

What’s your favorite analogue camera to shoot with?
Lubitel 166B with Kodak Ektachrome… ___

What’s the next camera you’d like to get your hands on?
LC-Wide

What’s your favorite memory from this year?
When I got my driving license! I thought I wouldn’t be able to do it but passed the test on the first try! Yuhuuuuuuuuuuu

And now for the toughest question – What’s been your favorite photo from the past year?
2011: The Goodbye Photo… :_(
