Imaginary World of Sugiyamasatomi, "Guidance"


This time, we're going to focus on 3 pictures of a stray cat that I took with Diana Mini half a year ago. It inspired me to do a story about a girl who can not adjust to the society. Find out more in this post!

Welcome to my Imaginary World Part 2!

This time, we’re going to focus on 3 pictures of a stray cat that I took with Diana Mini half a year ago. It inspired me to do a story about a girl who can not adjust to the society. Unlike my first project Today is the day I have actually gone out and shot majority of the images that I used for this second Lomo-film, and this has become a little more complex project for me! After struggling with audio quite a bit, I now proudly present you “Guidance”!

Some of you may have seen “Today is the day” and might have commented “No, Satomi, don’t die~,” or “Don’t be so negative~.” Hahaha, well, I did then promise a happy ending for the next film….did I keep my promise? Find it out!

    Oh, thank you so very much, everyone! A few people have pointed out that I misspelled 'monster'!:o I don't know how I did not notice it, but it takes hours of work to upload the video again, so I will just leave it as it please bear with me on that one! I was worried the video might have been too long, so I am really thankful to everyone who had spent your precious 6 minutes to watch my video and left nice comments! Thank you LSI, and thank you all for your support!

    nice.. the only thing i can say is maybe i wouldn't miss the words if they weren't... the images and the sounds are just beautiful enough.. for me, they work and are more powerful when they work alone, they lose a lot of power if they are "explained".. but i enjoyed it anyway!!!

    Angela Izzo on Shooting with the Diana Mini, Photographing Musicians, and Then Some

    While many of us can only dream of working with musicians and photographing them, Angela Izzo's job entails exactly that. Apparently, this is a fulfillment of her own dream that she had when she was younger. In this interview, Izzo talks about her beginnings which, of course, included going to as many shows and festivals as she possibly can; some of her most memorable on-the-job-experiences with the likes of The Doors, Lykke Li, Jack White, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and Chris Robinson Brotherhood; her inspirations and other interests; and her love for film photography and Diana Mini. And to those looking into fulfilling their own dreams of working in the same industry, Izzo also shares helpful advice based on her own experiences.
