From Mexico with love, lomo_bernis presents to us "My Friend" decuz... I hope you enjoy it!

Present you (your name, where you from, age, what do you do for make money, etc…)

Hey, im Ivan Guerra aka Decuz (also Dreczter, Drexler, Drecuz, Dexter), 24 years old and well, born in the city of Aguascalientes, Mexico, grow in Hermosillo, Sonora, in these days im back to my hometown to finish my career, now im trying to sell my own work

How did you know lomography?(tell us your first experience with lomo)

In 2005 a friend of mine called Gibrán V.M. was part of the crew from the Mexico city Magazine called Ene-O he give me a number of that month, and i read an article about Lomography presenting the Action sampler founded in Tepito, i was already taking pictures in the analogue/experimental way.

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

My first camera was a Minolta SRT 100x i took form a box of my dad in the closet. the firs lomographic camera was the fisheye no.2 i order it from the headquarter of Lomography in Vienna, Austria

Favorite film? Why?

Kodak Ekctachrome VS 100 by far, its totally impredectible, contrast and good saturation, could give you excellent result if you press the shutter in the right time/space/light.

Any strange history about you and the photography?

About, two months ago i took a picture of a neighborhood called Jesus Téran with the Holga 120 CFN loaded with 35 mm film, and when i saw the results i look that it was like a drop of water touching the sky, is not a double, until the day of now i wonder what is this!!!!!??? take a loook http://www.lomography.com/homes/decuz/albums/holga-35mm/photos/3580751

now my life is totally about analogue photography, i see this movement a life style, lomography is a life style.

Favorite shot from your gallery? Why?(post the link)

http://www.lomography.com/homes/decuz/albums/minolta-x-pro-no-3/photos/2018713

A great history behind this picture, cause was taked in the dessert of Sonora, San nicolas, 8 hours with the cable releaser in the Minolta, loeaded with my favorite film, a night full of laughs, acid, good music, nature, good friends, fire and animals.

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

I say redscale, i havent try black and white film but soon i will!!!!

3 hates and 3 loves from decuz…

Hates.- lies, violence and digital photography
Loves.- Mother Earth, women and analogue photography

Your ideal lomo week-end?

In Chichen Itzá full of all types of cameras and films!!! yeah!

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

Somehow, in the last dates, the hip hop is inspiring me, in special KRS One albums

Favorite photographer of all time?

War photographers

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

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

Wake up in the morning with dark coffee and reggae music, eat breakfast, some eggs, fish, chicken, go to play basquetball, regularly i take pictures every 3 or 4 days, go to downtown, drink some beer and walk around shooting things that awakes me some kind of good feelling, people, urban context etc. when i get back home i like to listen krs one albums, some drill and bass, and of course Lightning Bolt!!!!!
Peace!

    Summer Hot Spots: Blaavand, Denmark (Part One)

    When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand located at the Danish west coast with my brothers and my parents. However, I didn't anymore when I grew up. But in 2012, we hit the road again. It was my first visit there in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In this article, I'm going to present to you the photos I took with my Nikon F-501 SLR.

    Lomography Fisheye No.2: Seven Years of Wonder

    Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.

    Getting the Frame right every time

    I love my Diana, but framing can be trying at times, especially with the Instant Back which takes you 5cm away from the viewfinder peep hole. I found a way to make framing with the Diana more pleasant.

    My Vinyl Paradise

    “I would like to buy a jukebox.” I've said this many times, so 4 years ago my ex-girlfriend went to my home with a little package. "It's a present for you," she said. I opened it and found a 12" vinyl disc, the single "Woman" by Wolfmother. It was wonderful. "If you will finally buy a jukebox, you shouldn't miss playing this song," she said.

    As you can see in my albums, I love to photograph sports events. In this case, I used a pretty Actionsampler camera to document a mini basketball game played in the park of my city Como, in celebration of the Festival of Sports. It's a funny camera with interesting results! Take a look after the jump!
