My Friend lazara by lomo_bernis


A few days a go our friend panelomo make a very good interview, now is my turn to interview to another here you are with My Friend lazara!

Present you ( Your name, Where you from, Age, What do you do for make money, etc…)

My name is Lazara, female. I’m located in Belgrade, Serbia. I’m 23. Student of Art History, future curator and art theorethician. Kunstfreund. Daydreamer. Lomographer. Drummer. Great cook. Proffessional hedonist. Host and receptionist at one very, very hip hostel in Belgrade – Chillton 2. So, you know where to come when you’re visiting Belgrade!

How did you know Lomography? (Tell us your first experience with lomo)

I have to thank my best and dearest friend Ivana, who is known as Klickovic in the lomo community. I saw her doing all that lomo stuff, so I hurried to join in

Which was your first camera and how did you get it?

Credits to Klickovic once again! She gave me my very first camera, Praktica LTL 3. It was just a few months ago, we were having Easter lunch together with our numerous close friends at her crib, and I started strolling trough her cameras, and she told me: “Please, help me, take one if you want, I don’t know where to put all those cameras anymore!”. And that is how everything started.

Favorite film? Why?

I’m not sure that I can surely say which film is my favorite, because I haven’t tested most of them yet! But, I’m very fond of Kodak slide films, because of the great vivid color saturation, as well as DM Paradies 400 iso color film, which is made by Kodak too. The DM color films are great for switching to redscale, so that’s one more point for them!

Any strange history about you and the photography?

Ha ha, the history is being created right know!

Favorite shot from your gallery? Why?

Just one shot??!!! Ohh. ok. This one! I love this photo because it’s a frame from my everyday life, a photo of my family, a part which I particularly love!

Black and white or color?… or maybe red scale?

All of them. Anyway, I’m shooting my first roll of BW film right now, but I love BW photos, same as xpro slides and redscales.

3 hates and 3 loves from lazara…

I hate stupid people, I hate when something ruins a perfect shot that I was preparing for 15 minutes, and I hate to waste my time. I love when almost all photos on one film are bad except a few which turn out to be just perfect, I love my family (my lover, my cat and my friends), I love taking as much as I can from this only life I have.

Your ideal lomo week-end?

Staying at home and resting from my busy life! Until the evening, off course, then I have to do some nightclubbing or at least spend a little time with my friends.

Something special inspires you? or What is your motivation to take your photos?

I love taking photos, especially photos of people, because I’m interested in the motion of human body, in social aspects of various situations in life… And I want to capture my own emotions and joy trough the things and people that I photograph.

Favorite photographer of all time?

The one and only – Robert Mapplethorpe.

Do you have a favorite photographer in lomo? Who and Why?

I can just say that I love works of klickovic, anarchy, mephisto19, lomosexual_manboy, orangebird, adbigmilk, abcdefuck, karagodin, dogma, stouf, and many, many more lomographers. Oops, I forgot lomo_bernis!

Ok this is the last one: just tell us how is a day in the life of lazara…

Get up from the bed unwillingly, feed the cat, drink coffee, check e-mail and, go to work or go to college, do all the (un)necessary things in the downtown, visit the lab, meet up with my friends, run home to cook something for me and my dear baby, study for my exams, plan the evening or some bizarre activity or a theme party from time to time, watch a movie or go out, go to a birthday party almost every week, and shoot some photos all along!

Thanks for your time lazara!

    The Magic Yet To Come: Part 1

    Here’s a random and rather mysterious tale for you folks. Just the other day, I was at a local bar with a few friends. It was much like any other evening; we were sipping a couple of cocktails, recounting our adventures, falling over ourselves with laughter and half-drunkenly meditating on the meaning of life (a scientist once told me it’s 42 by the way). But then something truly strange happened. Read on to hear my story and please make a comment with your guess at the end!
