Bruce Lee AKA Jeansman shoots with the Lomo LC-A+

9

We've all stood in awe of the photos he shares. Jeansman is truly a witness, a documentarian, and most of all, a true Lomographer. Read on as he reveals his exploits with the Lomo LC-A+

A Marketing Planner from a satellite town of Taipei, Taiwan, Bruce Lee (aka Jeansman) owns almost every Lomographic camera, but pledges deep and undying love for his LCA+. Never without an LC-A+ in hand, Jeansman shoots the small town where he lives, a town he says is full of love & life, and that he never grows tired of capturing on film. Jeansman is a witness, a documentarian, and most of all, a true Lomographer.

Come sail away on the stunning photos of the one, the only, the mighty… Jeansman!

REAL NAME Bruce Lee
CITY Taipei
COUNTRY Taiwan

How long have you been a Lomographer (or are you new to this whole thing?)
BL: Since 2002 in a website. But I have my own Lomo camera in 2004 spring. Its the Supersampler.

Describe the LC-A+ in five words.
BL: Small, friendly, functional, powerful, funny

The strangest, funniest, or hands-down greatest photographic/Lomographic encounter that you have ever had.
BL: I actually have three:

  1. Lomo helped me to meet my fiance – we are the Lomo Couple!!!
  2. I almost got killed taking pictures in Shanghai.
  3. I’m witnessing the changes of my living place in these years. In the future my children or some younger people can see the changes of this city through my pictures.

If your photos shown here could have a soundtrack of three songs, what would they be (song title & artist please).

  • I have a dream – ABBA
  • Release me – Oh Laura
  • Misery – Soul Asylum

You’ve got black & white, slide, and color shots in your Amigo gallery. Which format is your favorite and why?
BL: My favorite format are slides, because its my original intention with Lomo.

If you could be anywhere, doing anything, right now, where would it be and what would you do?
BL: Making a better life for my family. I love my family.

Taiwan looks like a fascinating place! Tell us a few secrets about Taiwan that NO one from outside your country knows.
BL: San-Hsia Old Street and Tamsui waterfront. If you are visiting Taiwan, you must not miss it. You’ll experience the most traditional cultures of Taiwan which includes architecture, humanities and authentic cuisine. In San-Hsia Old Street and Tamsui waterfront, you can completely feel the most original taste of Taiwan!

What future do you see for analog photography? What do you think sets it apart from digital?
BL: I’m very worried about the lifespan of films. Production of films keep getting reduced every year, which means we have to pay more. I believe analog photography cant completely be replaced by digital photography. I would only use a digital camera while I’m working. Most of the time, my LC-A+ follows me wherever I go, and this causes the jealousy of my digital camera.

The one person (living or deceased) who you would most like to photograph.
BL: Andy Warhol, Twiggy Lawson and my family.

Your advice to future LC-A+ shooters.
BL: There are too much of possibilities by playing with LCA+, be brave to try whatever films and the ways of taking pictures. Be creative, you would make your LCA+ (or LCA) becomes the most perfect camera in the World! Talk less; imagine more!
