Lomoamigo Anna Ponsa Films Fashion with the LomoKino

2012-03-21

Anna Ponsa López is the fashion blogger (and lomographer) behind www.missnobody.com.es, website in which she, with such marvelous delicacy, shares her passions, in which we now find the LomoKino.

Name: Anna Ponsa Lopez
City/Country: Barcelona/España
Blog/website: www.missnobody.com.es

Tell us a bit about you, a quick intro.

My name is Anna, I study architecture, and I am a restless perfeccionist; I love discovering new things about different matters, learning from those around me and getting lost in Barcelona.

The best thing about fashion is:

For me, the best thing about fashion is not being a professional in the area. This way, I can enjoy it my way, 100%. I love going to runway shows, discovering the complexity of what goes on backstage, getting to know designers or stylists, watching how photographers work, looking at blogs and websites on the internet or buy fashion books and magazines from all around the world.

And the worst?

It’s quickness; season fly, fashion weeks overlap, publications multiply, etc. Definitely, too much information and too little time to assimilate.

How long have you been a lomographer? How did Lomography come into your life?

It’s been five years since I started experimenting with Lomography and, since then, it’s a fundamental part of my life. I discovered it in a magazine article and a few days later, by chance, I passed by a Lomography store in the Borne of Barcelona. I went in and, simply put, everything fascinated me.

What’s it been like to crank the wheel of the LomoKino to cover 080 Barcelona Fashion?

A unique, fun, and adrenaline rushed experience. Also, it forced me to dare to talk to designers and planners so they would let me film runways and go backstage. Truth is, it was the center o attention and it helped me meet a lot of new people.

How would you describe the LomoKino in five words?

Fun – Retro – Movie – Analog – Unpredictable.

The magic of the analog outcome, but also, in movement. You don’t capture the moment, but stories made of many pictures.

What designers runway would you like to film in analog with the LomoKino? Why?

I’d be fascinated to film in any Paris or London runway; Burberry Porsum for example. None the less, I think it would be quite interesting to film an Alta Costura runway (because of their rhythm, their magic, and the magic that makes it what it is); it’d be a dream come true.

Do you think you’ll continue to make analog photographs in five years or is all this just a phase of fashion???

Definitely, no doubt about it, I will continue to make analog photography. These allow me to capture something more than instant photography, the randomness makes the results uncover things which you hadn’t noticed before; it emphasizes aspects, mistakes that reveal details, etc. Surely, with the passing of time, there will be season in which they’ll be more or less in fashion, but all the same. I remember that when I bout the Diana F+ no one in my surroundings knew anything about Lomography and the analog world.

What has been your most unforgettable lomographic moment, or the funniest, or the weirdest… let’s say ‘memorable’, for whatever reason?

I can’t forget the feeling and nervousness I had when I took my first Diana F+ Instant Back picture. Really, it’s something that happens on every click, but that time was special.

If you could go with a camera and a sack full of film to any part of the world, where would you go? How would you go dressed?

I’d wear a jersey/short dress "oversized, thick black socks, sunglasses and some boots. I’d go, without a doubt, to Japan. It’s a country that fascinates me so much for their culture and gastronomy; like for it’s cities and it’s architecture (the traditional and the modern). With me, I’d take a LomoKino to film everything that surrounds me, and hidden in the bag, a Sardina (it’s results are fascinating).

Tell us, what projects have you been working on recently? Or what are your future plans?

Besides keeping my Architecture studies on track, there are plenty of projects which I’m doing thanks to my web page. I could highlight the MMMIND video and the Pablo Albacete photo session for Anaoana (Glint Shop). As future plans, I need to take a step forward, cross the border and embark in new projects related with design, fashion, and photography.

Any tips for those who want to start filming with the LomoKino

Don’t be afraid of the camera and the possibility to screw up. The best thing is to experiment and learn from trial and error.

Thank you so much for sharing this with us Anna and telling us your way of seeing and living fashion and lomography

    In the hands of those capable wielding it, art can be a powerful weapon. With it, for one, creation of fantastical realms far removed from the one we live in is entirely possible. Through collage making, Eugenia Loli builds such worlds that invite the audience not only to marvel at them but also, and most importantly, to see through the hodgepodge of images to find meaning and formulate interpretations.
