REAL NAME Robert Francis & Alex Kweskin
CITY Los Angeles
COUNTRY USA

How long have you been a Lomographer (or are you new to this whole thing)?
I have been a lomographer all my life, but only recently became aware of it.

Describe the Lomo LC-A+ in five words.
Liberating, funky, rewarding, easy, fun

The strangest, funniest, or hands-down greatest photographic/Lomographic encounter you’ve ever had?
The best lomograph I took was a pic of this janitor in the Zurich International airport, zipping through the terminal on a Segway, the light permeating through the floor to ceiling windows behind him, and all or his janitorial supplies in tow. This gentleman took his job seriously, and I felt I captured that.

If your photos shown here could have a soundtrack of three songs, what would they be (song title & artist please)?
1. Sweet Home Alabama – Lynyrd Skynyrd
2. Living On a Prayer – Bon Jovi
3. Walk This Way – Aerosmith

If you could take your Lomo LC-A+ and a sack of film anywhere in the world right now, where would you go, what would you do, and why?
I’d go home to Los Angeles and take a drive up PCH. We don’t get to spend too much time where we live these days and I miss what I consider to be the most beautiful highway in the world.

The one person (living or deceased) who you would most like to photograph.
Humphrey Bogart

Tell us more about your music. Where do you get your inspiration?
Most of my music is inspired by questions regarding the universal understanding and meaning of love. Also, I draw inspiration from a life spent only traveling.

You’ve toured so many places. What and where was the most memorable gig so far?
One of the most memorable gigs was in St Gallen, Switzerland at the OpenAir festival. The crowd was the most responsive and excited crowd we have played to thus far, and we fed off that wonderful energy.

If you could collaborate with someone for a music project, who would it be and why?
I would like to collaborate with that really cute chick who is the singer of Beach House.

Advice for Lomo LC-A+ shooters!
Take it everywhere you go and shoot spontaneously; shoot from the hip, literally. This is when the best pictures are taken.
