Lomographer for a Day: Valva at Kenya

I, analemma, I have lent my Sardina Möbius to my friend Valva to be Lomographer not for one day, but for two weeks to photograph his trip to Africa. Take a look at the amazing photos after the jump!

When my friend and bench partner Valva told me he was going to Kenya for two weeks, this report automatically visualized in my heard. In fact I bought the La Sardina Möbius- sardina-cameras/la-sardina-camera-mobius thinking of a 35mm camera that was light and simple, and if aside from those, it had a wide angle lens and allows double exposures, then it’s perfect.

Anyway, I ordered the camera at the Online Shop in early July and two weeks later, without having even opening it, I handed it to Valva in order for her to document her safari trip through African lands.

The truth is that looking at the pictures, I realize that she is a real potential lomographer, although it is also true that with a Kodak Elitechrome and Lomography Tungsten films, it is difficult to take ugly pictures, above all in such places.

Then, here’s my interview with her:

Analemma: Do you remember the last time you shot an analog film?

Valva: I don’t remember, exactly, but I think my last photos taken with an analog camera were from my travel to Italy with the school so…,eleven years ago.

A: How would you describe the experience in five words?

V: It was an experience that brought back memories, with some uncertainty because I could not see the photos in that moment, original, amazing and exciting

A: What picture of all you took, do you prefer and why?

V: One in which you can see a herd of elephants in the sunset. Light was very nice!

A: If you could teleport to anywhere in the world with this camera and a lot of film, where would it be and why?

V: Uffff…There are so many places that I would go! Maybe to Morocco to photograph its architecture and the markets.

A: Do you like lomo cameras? Why?

V: Yes, it was a fun experience and some pictures are very original!

If you want to see the full albums, go here for the Tungsten photos and here for the Kodak Elitechrome ones.
