We’ve invited five different personalities to collaborate with Lomography for our special line of Lomography T-shirts!
We now introduce you to Andreas Waldschütz – born and raised in Vienna, he started tinkering with photography when he was young, and was also a part of a hardcore krautrock band. After various stints in cooking school and heavy metals wholesaling, he immersed into advertising, until he stumbled into film making. Now he’s active in the fields of art, music, and fashion, working with a network of post-production pros and stylists in Vienna, strongly believing in making a visual difference.
Please tell us something about yourself.
Puh, the best would be to read my bio……
What’s your own definition of Lomography?
Fun, colorful, playful
Describe your first experience with analogue. What was your first camera? Do you remember the first thing you took a picture of?
It was an old Pentax camera from my uncle. He gave it to me and I didn’t know what to do at all. Got some film and put it in the camera wandering around my neighborhood and did the trial & error thing! As far as I can remember I took pictures of the lake close to where I grew up…….
What or who inspires you when you’re making film/photographs/music?
Places, music, people, the internet…..
Ok, here comes the cliche deserted-island question. Which Lomographic camera would you choose if you were stranded in an island?
I would bring the Diana+.
Any interesting/funny/memorable stories while creating your art?
To be honest there are so many stories because every shoot is an adventure for itself…….. Always working with the best team you can imagine and imagine working with your friends……it’s always a blast!!!!
If you could be anywhere in the world right now, documenting your adventures with a Lomographic camera, where would it be and why?
I would definitely be in Brazil…… first of all because I’ve never been there and I am dreaming about it for decades……and second I imagine the most beautiful people in the most beautiful nature…..I’ve got to go soon!!!
Make a playlist of songs that would make a good soundtrack of your life.
Right now it would be something like this:
U2 – original of the species
Lenny Kravitz – fields of joy
Miss Kittin – requiem for a hit
Snoop Dogg – drop it like it’s hot
Band of Horses – the great salt lake
Deftones – Passenger
Incubus – wish you were here
Mindless Self Indulgence – get it up
A Perfect Circle – judith
30 Seconds To Mars – yesterday
Recommend something good (it could be your favorite book, movie, music, food, etc).
I can recommend watching the sunset from table mountain in Cape Town drinking a few Millers…
Any last words to our Lomography community?
