What Got You Hooked Up With Lomography?


If we look up the definition of “hook up”, among other things we could get this: “to become attached to someone of something…a connection between two or more things”. All of them can easily define what I feel for Lomography.

I’ve not only become a photography fanatic, I’ve become totally connected to analogue photography, Lomography and everything that has to do with the wonderful cameras, the community, and so on. I have to admit I’ve always felt fascinated with the “vintage” things.

Anyway, in the first place, what got my hooked me up with Lomography? Without any doubt and hesitation: my black and turquoise Diana Mini! It was love at first sight, and from there “to the infinity and beyond”, like they say in Toy Story. I felt a rush of energy in my body when I held her in my hands, without even knowing what results I could achieve with her.

My Diana Mini in motion:
