Just like you, he felt that unmistakable affinity with this camera the very first time he laid his eyes on this little Russian black wonder. Hailing from St. Petersburg (the same city where the Lomo LC-A was conceived) our guru Gleby tells us why it’s his favourite in this exclusive interview!

Share to us your most memorable experience in the Lomographic Community.
I don’t know, there were a lot of interesting events in Russia and in the worldwide Lomographic Community. Lomo Picnics, meetings, competitions, doubles… The LC-A Race project 2010 was really exciting, I took part in it.
Have you actually met people in the Community that you now consider as close friends? If yes, name at least one of them.
Yes I know most of Lomographers from Russia and some of them are my good friends, for example: grad, plyshbel… I am really interested in doubles, so this is the good way to “discover” people.
Do you think you’ll still be taking Lomographs in the next 5 years? Why?
I think yes, if everthing will be ok, I will keep on doing this. It is part of my life, something like a pleasant addiction. :)
What is your favorite Lomo camera and why? Do you have any memorable experiences while using this camera?
My favorite camera is the LC-A
- the best one. It is always with me, if I am going out without LC-A it is something like going out without walet or a passport!
Is there any advice you can give to new analogue shooters?
I think you should feel more than think during shooting. More relaxing way of shooting.
