Monoflow - Another Lubitel Lover

5

A Lubitel Lover who studies Jewelry design in the heart of Antwerp loves robots and food. Go with the flow with monoflow!

Monoflow has a big passion for vintage cameras, toys and furniture. In his spare time he broadens his creative vision through analogue photography.

1. How did you get into Lomography?

In 2004 I was walking through a bookstore in Jakarta called Aksara and I saw in the display cabinet a white funky plastic camera! I checked out the box and saw all these funky colorful portraits of people and dogs, so I bought my first Colorsplash! From then on the Lomography adventures never stopped!

2. How intimate are you to your Lubitel? Is it your “soul camera”?

Pretty up close and personal I must say! Hahaha, I’m a big fan of the Lubitel 166+ although I still have a lot to learn. I don’t know if I can call it my “soul camera” because I LOVE all my cameras, they all have their own characteristics and unique abilities. I don’t dare to pick my most favorite or else I’ll feel guilty afterwards!

3. The most absurd Lubitel moment that you have had so far?

One thing I love to do on my free time is going to flea markets or special photography fairs and here in Antwerp we have a few of them now and then. About a month ago I was at the “Fotografie Beurs” walking around with the Lubitel around my neck looking for some vintage gadgets and I came across a Lubitel 2, so I thought “WOW! I gotta have that” before I asked the seller how much it cost he asked me about my Lubitel 166+. He said he’s never seen a model like this and if it was new, I told him how I could also use a 35mm film by this time he looked very interested in what I have. He asked if I could give a price for it – “NO! but you can give me the price of yours” I said with a big smile, and he did it was a bargain!

4. Which Lubitel film format do you prefer, 35mm, square, rectangular or panoramic?

I like the 35mm, but when I want to take a photo horizontally I sometimes get confused. It depends on what kind of photographs I want to take and which films are available in the fridge, right now I’m in my rectangular mood but so far like the 120 square format the most.

    12 Months, 12 Projects: September - Food Photography

    Last month I was going to go full throttle into food photography. I'd cook up all kinds of scrumptious food and take mouth-watering pictures. But, as a famous Dutch line of poetry goes "between dream and deed / are laws, and practical objections." In other words, stuff came up.
