Hello, tell us a bit about yourselves and your Lomographic journey.
Hello, my name is Kamal Faiz Kamaludin, but mostly everyone calls me Kamal. I’ll be 21 years old this year. Currently, I’m studying on quantity surveying at UiTM Shah Alam. In 2007, I was introduced to Lomography by a friend from school. Since then, I fell in love with it and kept on experimenting and studied about lomography.

Show us your favorite photo in your collection and why?
Why? Because there’s an eye contact between me and the animal. Please save the animal from irresponsible parties.
