To celebrate our 25th anniversary, we are honoring 25 of the most iconic Lomographers in the community. We did some catching up with Edmund Li, also known as edmund_li, who is celebrating his 10th year in Lomography!
Name: Edmund Li
Year when you joined Lomography: 2007
Let's do a backtrack: How did you discover Lomography?
From a Hong Kong lifestyle magazine, "MILK". They had a column talking about Lomography at the last few pages of that magazine. They picked and shared very nice Lomo photos from Lomographers around the world. And I was totally enchanted by all those beautiful Lomo pics!
What was your first Lomography camera?
Lomography Supersampler x Anna Sui! Back to an earlier time, Lomography wasn't available yet in Malaysia and it was really hard to get a Lomography camera. And luckily, that time Anna Sui was selling a boxset, perfume + Supersampler camera! I just bought it without a second thought, hahaha!
What's your fondest Lomography moment?
Every moment we went out for a Lomography outing -- the gatherings and having a trip together for shooting! That's the best moment of all time!
What does Lomography mean to you?
Friendship and full of beautiful memories.
Could you share some of your earliest Lomography shots?
What keeps you busy now?
Hmmm… nothing major but I've been camping a lot lately.
Who were your Lomography friends back then?
What advice would you give new Lomographers?
Grab their Lomography camera, Don’t think and just shoot! (Seriously, don’t think at all!)
