Say hello to Monika Mitterdorfer a.k.a. “agrimony”, one of our Lubitel lovers whose passion is analogue photography (not a surprise!).
1. How long have you been a Lomographer? How did you get into it?
I’m a Lomographer since a very long time. I read about those two Austrian students who bought the Lomo-factory in the newspaper and was fascinated by their marketing strategy – making a cult out of something which was moribund. I think it was in 1998 when I got my first LC-A. Three years later I became a member of the online Lomography community. Since then I became more and more involved in analogue photography and it is now a very important part in my life. I never leave my home without at least one camera. (isn’t this rule number 1?)
2. Write a Lubitel acrostic (each letter in Lubitel spells out a new word)

3. The strangest, funniest, or hands-down greatest photographic/Lomographic encounter that you have ever had.
One of the strangest “adventures” I remember was when I was in Berlin together with my Horizon. I never thought that people living in a big city could be so irritated by no more than a strange looking camera making a strange noise. I wonder how people would react when I go on a journey with my Lubitel :-D!
