He may be a man of few words but his film photographs do care to speak for themselves. Surely another talented newcomer this week!

Coming from Serbia, Aleksandar currently owns and relies on a pretty neat Zenit 122. That’s all that he needs right now for his shots are just lovely. Let us get to know him more today!

Please tell us a little something about yourself.

I am an ordinary person who lives in a small village. Electronics and computers is what I do. One of my favourite hobbies is aquascaping and of course analogue photography.

How did you find the Community and who/what convinced you to join?

As soon as I started shooting film, I searched on the internet some tips and discussions about analogue photography and it was just a matter of time when I bumped into the website. That’s when it happened! I joined immediately and started to upload photos.

As you have read the 10 Golden Rules of Lomography, what rule do you apply in your everyday life?

I’ve read them… Rule #3 “Lomography is not an interference in your life, but part of it” and rule #10 “Don’t worry about any rules..”

In this digital age, why still film?

I love doing something with my hands, I love researching and experimenting, and film allows me to do it.

Great portraiture!

Any song or movie you live by? Please share.
