Say Hola! to our newest Lomo Amigos, the Black Kids!
Say “Hola!” to our newest Lomo Amigos, the Black Kids! This Florida based indie rock band took a Fisheye No. 2 out with them on their last tour. Take a look at the great photos and cuddle up a bit closer to the band in their interview.
Where has been your favorite place to tour? And what did you like best about playing shows there?
Dawn: Australia was by far the best place to tour. The people there are ecstatic to see bands and the country itself is quite beautiful.
Ali: I loved all the tours, but must I mention that the Japanese give cute little gifts to you after shows?
Kevin: The UK summer festivals are unmatchable.
What crazy souvenirs did you bring home from this last tour?
Ali: From Mexico, I brought home the biggest sized panties you can imagine (two people per leg).
How long have you been Lomographers (or are you new to this whole thing?).
Reggie: We are New Lomographers.
Describe the Fisheye No. 2 in five words
Owen: The most psychedelic camera ever.
What is the strangest, funniest, or hands-down greatest photographic/Lomographic encounter that you have ever had?
Owen: Inadvertently documenting a crew member’s on-the-road infidelity.
The one person (living or deceased) who you would most like to photograph.
Dawn: Magic Johnson
Ali: Kate Bush!
Owen: Ralph Nader
Reggie: Cain & Abel (family portrait/mug shot)
Kevin: James Stewart
What is your advice to future Fisheye No. 2 shooters?
Ali: Get up close and personal on your subject. Also, patterns in the shot can make it trippy.
Kevin: Be sure to move your finger out of the way of the flash.
What’s next for the Black Kids?
Reggie: We were gonna write another album, but now we just roam around taking lomo photos. Sometimes we get taunted and called “lomosexuals” but WE DON’T CARE. We believe in our art!
