Make Your Prophecy Finalist: reneg88

Congratulations to reneg88, one of the Make Your Prophecy Competition finalists! Read on to see his winning artwork and find out why he chose to represent the prophecy he did...

Paradise With You by Rene G. Boscio

Name: René G. Boscio
Country: Puerto Rico
Lomohome: reneg88

Why did you choose the prophecy you chose? What does this prophecy mean to you?

I chose the #10 Prophecy. It reads “The analogue future is the home of a holy lot of love, joy, fun, sex and… THE PARADISE!”. I chose this prophecy because I live in paradise. The island which I live on is beautiful, full of beaches and palm trees, a really big rainforest, and breath taking views. This prophecy means life. In every way. As it says what the analogue future is the home for: love (I find my life is based on this sole concept of simply giving love as much as you can), joy (everyone needs happiness in their lives, and an analogue lifestyle is a very effective way to get it), fun (because who doesn’t have fun composing a shot, advancing the lever, and taking the shot, not to mention developing and scanning!), sex (because we are human after all, and the flesh needs some passion, and I, however it may sound, simply LOVE having sex). And what better way to capture this paradise that we call life, than with the beauty of analog photography, through the easy-to-use products that Lomography offers us.

Why did you choose to represent it as you did?

My prophecy is in the form of a song. As those who know me or have read my blog entries or articles know, I am first and foremost a musician. It’s what I do by nature, I write music, write songs, compose, etc. So I decided to make this really catchy tune about The Paradise of the Analogue Future, using words and phrases from all of the prophecies to create the lyrics to the song, and called it “Paradise With You”. It tells the story of the beautiful life a lomographer leads, always with his favorite camera by his side.

What do you think would be a good 11th Prophecy?

ANALOGUE IS LOVE
The smell of film, as you open it from it’s canister for the first time, and even then, right after you take it out of the camera once you’ve finished shooting it. The way your hand slides on the advance lever as you get ready to capture the next glimpse of beauty for your lens to feast on. The way you close your eyes as you get closer to the viewfinder. The way you press the shutter button to tell your camera that it’s okay to blink. The sound it makes as it follows your command. The way you back away, with that feeling of accomplishment, as you know you’ve just captured a beautiful shot. The way you anxiously wait, for the film to finish developing. The light that hits your face, as you hold your strips of film against the sun, to see how the images look on the negatives. The rush you feel as you insert the film into your scanner. And finally, the simple happiness, that overwhelms your insides, when you see the beauty of the photo you and your camera have made. There is nothing more to it. Analogue, is the beat in your heart. Analogue, is love.

    "Paradise With You"
    Music and Lyrics by: René G. Boscio

    Look once I'm standing here wearing my heart on my sleeve.
    Look twice I disappear 'cause no one's really noticing.
    The world keeps changing, and I'm staging my mind to experiment.
    'Cause in the dirt and dust is the real life beauty of love, in us.

    Let loose of your control, take a chance to be surprised.
    You don't have to know, but if you let it go, your life just might take flight.
    See, what I'm saying, is I'm playing for luck and confidence.
    'Cause the overtones of your beauty make me like all the suspense.

    Oh, it's like living in 1965, with a camera in hand,
    As we're letting all our plans unfold.
    Oh, it's an analog life, it's paradise, with darling you.
    It's paradise with you.

    I wait forever and a day without knowing what to expect.
    Original, in a fancy dress, looking nothing but your best.
    And I must admit I'm slowly losing my mind.
    But how could I resist it, when you're one of a kind.

    Oh, it's like living in 1965, with a camera in hand,
    As we're letting all our plans unfold.
    Oh, it's an analog life, it's paradise, with darling you.
    It's paradise with you.
