REAL NAME Brian Milo
CITY Loves Park
COUNTRY USA

How long have you been a Lomographer?
Brian Milo: Since August of 2003.

Describe the LC-A+ in five words.
BM: Compact user friendly automatic camera.

The strangest, funniest, or hands-down greatest photographic/Lomographic encounter that you have ever had.
BM: Meeting Terry Richardson in the O’hare airport last October.

If your photos shown here could have a soundtrack of three songs, what would they be (song title & artist please).
BM: Closer to the Sun – Slightly Stoopid, S.I.B. (Swelling Itiching Brain) – Devo and Give it up – Pepper.

Digital or Analog? Why?
BM: I am all analog for my personal shooting, but if a job calls for digital I’ve got no problems with it. Why? Because I can’t put a compact flash card in my LOMO LC-A+, I tried it but there were no images on it after the shoot.

If you could be anywhere, doing anything, right now – where would it be and what would you do?
BM: Lomo headquarters, getting a job interview.

The absolute best restaurant in your town – something authentic, delicious, and not too pricey. Name & address please.
BM: Carlyle Brewery 215 East State Street Rockford, IL 815-963-BREW

Things about the LC-A+ that you love & adore.
BM: Automaticness (it’s a new word) and the classic vignette around the edges.

Your advice to future LC-A+ Lomographers.
BM: You’ll accomplish more if you start now.
