Please tell us something about yourself and what you do.

Hello, world! I’m 21 years old and I studied programming but I really don’t know what I would like to do in my life. I love travelling because breathtaking landscapes and interesting people inspire me to take photos. During my free time, I ride a bike or long board. I have a cat named Storm and rainbow hair. Also, I’m vegan.

I forgot to tell you that I live in Russia. It is too cold here and I want to die every winter. Please, help me to move to a warm place or just gift me some bottles of mulled wine.

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

My friend @zhenyaetoya invited me to join the Community. I often used the site to see photos shot with different cameras or films, but I never thought about sharing my own photos here.

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

I partly use the 6th rule: “Don’t think” (William Firebrace).

Here is the full version of the rules I follow:

“1. Don’t think.
2. If you think, don’t say it.
3. If you think and say, don’t write it.
4. If you think, say and write, don’t sign for it.
5. If you think, say, write and sign for it, don’t be surprised.”

- Felix Dzerzhinsky

In this digital age, why still film?

When you have only one film for 36 prints, you will value every shot and you’ll not waste the film on boring points of life.

Your favorite analog camera as of the moment? Why?

Yashica FX-3 Super 2000. It’s my second SLR camera after the Zenit 122. I really feel like a professional with that camera. [Laughs]

What is the Lomographic camera you’d want to have someday?

Lomo LC-A 120. I never used 120 film and it would be a great chance to try that camera.

Any song, book, or movie you live by?

Song: “One” by Johnny Cash
Book: Screw It, Let’s Do It by Richard Branson
Movie: Wild (2014)

Share your current favorite Lomograph, could be yours or a friend’s. Why?

It’s a miracle when you are on top of the clouds, isn’t it?

This was taken by myself on Summer 2015. I traveled on Baikal Lake with my friends. It was so amazing trip.

Any Community member you look up to? If so, why him or her?

I know a lot of amazing people here, that’s why I can’t to choose one of them. Sorry. I can only recommend that you check the LomoHome of my friend @kibermike. He is always looking for new things and experiments are the meaning of his life.

What are you looking forward to in our Community?

I’m really waiting when the goods from Lomography shop become available for users from Russia. I would like to test some cameras but it is not possible right now.


Thank you bububu for sharing your thoughts with us! Welcome to the community and we’re all looking forward to seeing your future work!
