My Friend Fookshit

I'm assuming you're all familiar with the "Behind the Scenes" feature here in the blog, where we ask some of the most active Lomographers in the community a list of questions, mostly about their analog life.

I’m assuming you’re all familiar with the “Behind the Scenes” feature here in the blog, where we ask some of the most active Lomographers in the community a list of questions, mostly about their analog life.

We’re introducing a new feature called “My Friend _______.” The blank is where you fill in the name of a person from the community that you choose to interview. Yes, now it’s your turn to introduce your friend via a series of Q&A! Then it will be posted on the blog, and the interviewee will get the chance to pick someone to interview, too! Does it sound confusing? Don’t worry – we’ll be posting about the guidelines very soon.

In the meantime, I would like to introduce all of you to My Friend, Fookshit!

Name: my friends call me FOOKSHIT

Location: currently in MANILA

Work: photographer/photomontagist/stylist/film fetishist

The first time I met you, you mentioned that you’re always online. What do you do when you’re offline, then?
I take snapshots of anything and have them processed to make some new pictures. I cut photos/magazine pages and paste them together to make new pictures. I sleep (a lot) because I always see new pictures whenever I am dreaming.

Name three items that you can’t live without.
iPod, Olympus mju1 film camera, my notebook w/internet conexion

Any interesting photography-related stories?
erm … none, sorry

If you could take a photo of someone – famous or not – who would it be?
TWO TOM (http://www.myspace.com/twotom) i want to wear his designs while I’m taking his photographs.

The story of your life in video/song/movie would be:

video: yuki – sentimental journey (http://www.partizan.com/partizan/v.php/nagi_noda_yuki_sentimental_journey/)

song: LO-FI FNK (PRONOUNCED AS LOW FAI FUNK)-“steppin’ out” (http://www.myspace.com/lofifnksweden) – as of now

movie: all about lily chou-chou by shunji iwai

A Day in the life of Fookshit:
coffee. film reviews. feeding my cats.

If you could wallpaper the sky with one of your images, which one would it be?

- a boy smiling back at me.

Your ultimate pet peeve:
there’s this guy who always lurks here in lomography.com and then he’ll blabber about the film class being not credible enough on another photography website.

Dream project/collaboration:
it would be – again – TWO TOM for my WHY DON’T YOU SHOOT BOYS series (http://fookshit.xlogz.com)

Recommend something good.
