Dressing Up DIESEL


DIESEL's window display looked knockout great in Lomography. At least that's how I remembered it to be two years ago.

DIESEL is an Italian design company known for high quality trendy ready-to-wear clothing. While its primary market is the young adults, the company has also come up with product lines for kids and babies. With headquarters in Breganze, it has expanded in more than 80 countries across Europe, Asia and the Americas with more than 400 company-owned stores.Products that go with the Diesel brand range from denims, bags, accessories, footwear, underwear, eyewear, timepieces, jewelry, home furnishings, fragrances, helmets to bags.

In 2009, DIESEL tapped some members of Lomomanila to organize groups to ideate and transform visual ideas into actual window displays in three branches namely, Greenbelt, Rockwell and Shangrila Mall. The theme was ‘Knockout’ which was based on the upcoming season sale. My friend Ailen (fangcarpenter) and I were invited to join the team of Mon Guinto assigned to dress up the Greenbelt branch. We had our fun shoot in one of the team member’s house in Ayala Alabang Village. A concrete wall in an alley was simultaneously splashed with paintballs of different colors from various directions while a female model dressed in white was standing in front. The result was a fusion of colors on the wall and on the model’s dress, not to mention all the paints that scattered over her beautiful face and body.

We came up with lomowalls printed on huge sintra boards which make up the right window (if facing the store) together with a headless mannequin wearing a dress and a boxing glove marked with a percentage sign and of course, DIESEL. On the left window, we hanged nylon strings from ceiling to the floor to hold the normal prints attached in random fashion. A bit of chaos on the left was balanced by the sense of order on the right.

The final output was an awesome feat which ran from July to August. The whole experience for me was a blast specially that it was the first time for my work to be on display together with works of seasoned lomographers. Truly memorable thanks to the entire team — Mon, Chris, Jolo, Ailen, Mariel, Pepper, Olie, Risa, Faye, Karen and Liana (online). Sorry if I miss anyone. :D

    Lomography Fisheye No.2: Seven Years of Wonder

    Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.

    Fresh from the Lab: 1990

    A weekend without a lomowalk seems bad, at least for me. One Saturday morning, I decided to join my friends in their lomowalk. It was all cloudy at first but it didn't stop me from going out and walking. I brought my new Nikon FM2 and some expired rolls, just to test my camera. Was it just me being sleepy, or was my Nikon FM2 acting up? My photos turned out grainy, pale, and, in my opinion, looking so 1990s?

    Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 120: Perfect for Endless Multiple Exposures!

    About two years ago or so, I purchased the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200. I saved just one roll of this film and waited for the right moment to shoot with it. In April this year, I just wasn't able to take it anymore! I loaded this film into my Lubitel 166+, which I realized I hadn't used for maybe about six months. One idea came to mind: taking crazy multiple exposures!

    Transient Living: Armitage & McMillan in Denver, Colorado

    If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!

    When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand, located at the Danish west coast, with my brothers and parents. I stopped going there as I grew up. In 2012 however, we hit the road again. It was my first return visit in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In part two of my journey log, I'm going to show you the pictures I took with my Lomography cameras.
