Black Kids Shoot with a Fisheye No. 2

Say Hola! to our newest Lomo Amigos, the Black Kids!

Say “Hola!” to our newest Lomo Amigos, the Black Kids! This Florida based indie rock band took a Fisheye No. 2 out with them on their last tour. Take a look at the great photos and cuddle up a bit closer to the band in their interview.

REAL NAMES
Owen Holmes
Kevin Snow
Dawn Watley
Ali Youngblood
Reggie Youngblood

CITY
Jacksonville, Fla.

COUNTRY
USA

Where has been your favorite place to tour? And what did you like best about playing shows there?
Dawn: Australia was by far the best place to tour. The people there are ecstatic to see bands and the country itself is quite beautiful.
Ali: I loved all the tours, but must I mention that the Japanese give cute little gifts to you after shows?
Kevin: The UK summer festivals are unmatchable.

What crazy souvenirs did you bring home from this last tour?
Ali: From Mexico, I brought home the biggest sized panties you can imagine (two people per leg).

How long have you been Lomographers (or are you new to this whole thing?).
Reggie: We are New Lomographers.

Describe the Fisheye No. 2 in five words
Owen: The most psychedelic camera ever.

What is the strangest, funniest, or hands-down greatest photographic/Lomographic encounter that you have ever had?
Owen: Inadvertently documenting a crew member’s on-the-road infidelity.

The one person (living or deceased) who you would most like to photograph.
Dawn: Magic Johnson
Ali: Kate Bush!
Owen: Ralph Nader
Reggie: Cain & Abel (family portrait/mug shot)
Kevin: James Stewart

What is your advice to future Fisheye No. 2 shooters?
Ali: Get up close and personal on your subject. Also, patterns in the shot can make it trippy.
Kevin: Be sure to move your finger out of the way of the flash.

What’s next for the Black Kids?
Reggie: We were gonna write another album, but now we just roam around taking lomo photos. Sometimes we get taunted and called “lomosexuals” but WE DON’T CARE. We believe in our art!
