Tell us more about yourself.

I love ‘80s cult movie, red beers, West Ham United, SSC Napoli, football jersey, Arctic Monkeys, Eddie Vedder’s voice, Haruki Murakami’s books, Emir Kusturica, Vans shoes, Game of Thrones, and girls with big eyes.

Why is this Lomo LC-Wide your Weapon of Choice?

This camera is my Weapon of Choice because it is pretty small. I can simply put it in my pocket and bring it everywhere. It just have two focus adjustments so you’ll have less chances of making a mistake. You can use it under any light condition.

Mario has used the Lomo LC-Wide in many of his filmswap projects with fellow Lomographers.

Any memorable experiences you’ve had while using the Lomo LC-Wide?

Almost three years ago, Lamberto (flashstalker) let me use his Lomo LC-Wide, and I immediately fell in love with. I still owe him bigtime for letting me try and discover the camera.

Would you recommend the Lomo LC-Wide to other Lomographers? If yes, to whom do you have in mind?

I want suggest this camera to giovannidecarlo, because he always ask if he can borrow mine. I cannot live a day without my little baby so I never let him use it. He should buy his own!

When using the Lomo LC-Wide, what are you favourite subjects to photograph and why?

Myself. Yes my usual subject is myself. I enjoy taking selfies with the Lomo LC-Wide because it can make my arms look so much longer. I just love this kind of selfie. At the beginning of 2014, I started new project. I will take a selfie everyday and make a video out of them at the end of the year.
