LomoPeople: Jake

1

Always there for the last shot on the reel.

I get a Fisheye 1 as a birthday present and I want to try it out straight away. I drag him into the sunshine to take my first photographs. I put the lens right in his face.

He unenthusiastically accompanies to me to the shopping centre to get film processed. And there is one more photo to take. So I take it of him. He isn’t keen. But I don’t give him much of a choice.

We are at a family party and I’ve taken my camera. I insist everyone has their photo taken in their costumes individually. I suggest Jake has his first to encourage the others.

I want to take a picture of a dead bird. Jake picks it up for me. Like a younger brother should.

Jake, always unwillingly willing to help me out.

    The Magic Yet To Come: Part 5

    Last week, I received the strangest thing through my letterbox. It was a postcard with this photograph on 1 side. The photo is of me sitting by the sea whilst I was on vacation last year. But I have literally no idea who took this shot – That’s why I came here, to ask for your help on my search for my mysterious photographer and to try and get to bottom of the riddle they wrote me. Please help me if you can!

    Lorenzo Antico's 'Final Shot' Presents Last Shots From 33 Films

    A movie's parting shot is a crucial element in the sense that it could either make or break the lasting impression that it would have on its audience. It could either wrap things up quite nicely and leave viewers satisfied, or it could do otherwise. For many, it's often the first thing that comes to mind long after the final credits have rolled out.

    Happenings on Film: Graffiti Contest for Expo 2015

    On the last Saturday of July, the old district of Borgo Vico hosted an art and music festival. There was also a graffiti contest, and the winner will exhibit his work at the Como Business Center for Expo 2015. I used my Zorki 4 loaded with an Ilford FP4+ film to document the event. I focused on the young artists who, amid the swirl of activity, had to concentrate on their large-scale pieces.

    March Frenzy: Tottenham Takes Over the V&A

    I went to the Victoria & Albert Museum's Friday Late, an event that takes place every last Friday evening of the month. For March 2014, the London borough of Tottenham was invited to curate an evening of creativity. There were a number of events that went on ranging from music and art to fashion and film. Accompanied by my LC-A+ and Fisheye No. 2, here are my highlights of that evening in photographs.
