LomoPeople in Spain, Live nº1: Maneke

2011-05-26

Many of us are Spanish lomographers (or live in Spain) and we participated in the community. So if you want to know a a bit more of us, here’s GenteLomo in Spain! He is the first live: Maneke!

How Lomography crossed in your life? Tell us your story!
The first contact, light contact, long time ago when I purchased a ActionSampler Flash a friend´s birthday. She had told me once that she loved it I decided to go to the store for buy it for her. That’s when I caught the bug. And a couple of years later I bought one for myself:) For my birthday, I got my first lomo, a blue SuperSampler. This is how Lomography crossed in my life.

This is your favorite photo. Why?
I really like this composition (I find it a very cosmopolitan picture) and it was the second time I was in Berlin. I have a lot of memories of that trip.

What is your perfect combination camera / film?
I do not know if it’s a perfect combination, I want to try it, but I think maybe an Agfa Vista film (35mm, 400ISO) with the square format of the DianaMini, it can be cool!

Your lomodebility?
I love feet photos. Maybe I like it for my SuperSampler, I did a lot of pictures while I was walking down the street.

How do you define Lomography?
A casual art. Lomography gives you the ability to express an uncontrolled way.

A LomoHome which you recommend?

Yeah, right. I really like Jorgesato's LomoHome. I recommend you to go there!

    A Salute to the Masters: Gypsies in Como (A Tribute to Josef Koudelka)

    This article is dedicated to the Czech photographer, Josef Koudelka, and his book, "Gypsies," a classic in documentary photography. "Gypsies" contains a series of images Koudelka took between 1962 and 1971 in the former Czechoslovakia, Romania, Hungary, France, and Spain. Here, he was able to masterfully depict the simplicity of the gypsy lifestyle, never presenting their situation as a social problem but instead showing their lives as a mix of joyfulness and wonder, sorrow and mystery.
