LomoPeople: Carmine

He inspires me to capture the moment and with his portraits, I totally feel like I’m home.

When I first started taking Lomographs, I was away from the place I grew up, away from the life-long friendships I’ve made and away from my brothers and my family. So I used the shots I took to show them what I was up to and what life was like living hundreds of miles away.

But then when I’d go back to visit, I found myself taking a ton of shots so I can document and remember what life is like to still be there. One of my favorite people to take a portrait of is my nephew, Carmine. Even though he’s just three and a half years old, his style in front of the lens is the same as if there was no camera around. He doesn’t freeze up or pose for the camera, he’s just Carmine. Whether he’s laughing, jumping, crying, or just playing with his toys, the film totally captures his essence.

    when we are child we think that hair can't be cut without feel pain, it's just terrific! I remember when I was a child, when I commit something wrong the punishment was a session at the barber! I still wonder why.

    Haha that's soo funny! My brothers still tell me they remember feeling afraid to go to the barber when they were young. Not sure if this feeling is the same for girls, I don't even remember my hair cuts as a kid...
