Hello! Please introduce yourself in a few words…
An ordinary person with great dreams on her works. Usually I spend most of my time to make stuff, listening to music, watching movies, drawing and surfing the net. My favourite food are tomato and potato. Please don’t add sugar in my tea. I always try to be weird but in good way… so far still normal.
Are you a keen lomographer or are you new to this whole thing?
I’m new and curious!
What’s the best part of your job?
I can wear pajamas to work since I work at home.
And the worst?
I don’t have a chance to show off my new dresses.
Who inspired you the most in your artwork? Why?
No one inspired me the most so far. It is easy to be influenced if you’re far too keen on other artist’s works. But I always get ideas from beautiful things! It can be anything that surrounds us.
Tell us the most heart-warming moments that happened in your life so far?
I’ve encountered a lot of good people in my life so far. It sounds too good to be true though.
We heard that you are in love now. Do you mind sharing with us how it happened and are there any memorable moments that happened between you?
Do you believe that we’ve had crush on each other because of a book on Facebook? This is a long story to explain but our common interest brings us together. We are not the romantic type. I really enjoy his company when we’re sitting on a couch watching our favorite movies.
Did you enjoy documenting your adventures with the Diana Mini?
Yes! You can’t figure out what picture you shoot in this tiny camera. It made us excited for the result.
Describe the Diana Mini in five words:
Tiny, wonderful, unexpected, positive and unknown.
What is the definition of analogue lifestyle to you?
There are no mistakes.
The most unforgettable, strangest, funniest or worst photographic/Lomographic encounter that you have ever had.
This tiny thing made me popular among the kids every time I use it.
If you could take your camera and a sack of film anywhere in the world right now, where would you go and why?
South American countries. I’m inspired by a film, The Motorcycle Diaries.
If you could photograph anything in the world (person, place, moment, whatever) what would it be?
Anything. I will turn pictures into my biography documentary entitled “Minifanfan, The Happiest Artist”.
Tell us something about you’ve been doing lately, like your latest project and your future plans?
I will be traveling to South Korea and New Zealand for few months. Discovering the world, exploring as much as I can. In the meantime, I will keep on drawing. Thanks for a chance to get a Diana Mini, another good companion in my trip! Check out my home for more pictures about my works and travel.
What’s your favorite photo in the collection and why?
My favorite is the picture of a nice afternoon at playground. It makes me happy every time I look at it.
What tips can you give future Diana Mini users?
Forget the book.
