He’s already had his Lomo LC-A for well over 10 years, still in its pristine and unrepaired state, but it’s just recently he decided to join in the fun of analogue snap-sharing in the Lomography website. Indeed a man of few words, let’s get to know our newcomer, Elcalamare!

How did you find out about the Community and who/what convinced you to join?

I have had a Lomo LC-A for almost 14 years. It has never needed repair and I just love the colours and uncertainty of what to expect. Thought I’d join (as its free) and see if anyone like my photos and also view others.

Is there anyone in the Lomographic Society you look up to? If yes, who is him/her and why?


As you have read the 10 Golden Rules of Lomography, what rule do you apply in your everyday life?

Carry a Lomo everyday.

In this digital age, why still film?

The expectation and anticipation.

Share your current favorite Lomograph (could be yours or a friend’s) and explain why it is your favorite.
