Almost everyone thinks that you really have to travel and go far beyond your usual turf to be able to find something interesting to take pictures of, but Lomopreacher thinks otherwise! Instead, he seeks solitude to the most mundane of things found in his own garden, along with his Lomo camera!

How did you find out about the Community and who/what convinced you to join?
I knew through Lomography Italia.
Is there anyone in the Lomographic Society you look up to? If yes, who is him/her and why?
No, i try to approach Lomography in a personal way, I’m really influenced by the place where i live…By the nature… I love trees and animals…And you can see it through my pics.
As you have read the 10 Golden Rules of Lomography, what rule do you apply in your everyday life?
I try to take my cameras everywhere i go. I try to get closer to the subject , I don’t think when I take pictures…I’m really impulsive… I take pictures also in my garden, sometimes you don’t have to go far for taking good pictures…There’s a lot also in your house or in your garden!
In this digital age, why still film?
Cause i love waiting’ for the results. The use of the film is a sort of ritual. Could be seem fetish but I also like the smell of films… And I love the surprise… With film you don’t know what will be the results…This is so cool!
Share your current favorite Lomograph (could be yours or a friend’s) and explain why it is your favorite.
My favorite lomographer is Pretty in Mad… I really love her pictures, she really loves analogue cameras and has many things to explain. I learned many things from her tutorials… She’s a LomoGuru!
