janisthewanis, our Lubitel expert and Grand Champion of this summers Lubitel rumble, has shared his thought on Lomography, his tips for others, and of course the Lubitel.

1. How long have you been a Lomographer? How did you get into it?

I’ve been a member of the Lomography website since January of 07. I signed up after I picked up a copy of the Holga Life Through a Plastic Lens book and that pointed me towards the website and online community.

2. What do you most love about the Lubitel?

Its sex appeal.

3. Describe the Lubitel in five words.

It is a plastic box

4. The strangest, funniest, or hands-down greatest photographic/Lomographic encounter that you have ever had.

I was in Brazil and as I was walking down the street, a random kid came up the street in a cardboard box. The box covered most of his body so all that could be seen were his calves and feet as they pattered down the road. I stopped and watched as he walked in a perfect line down the road and turned down another road as if this were something that he did on a regular basis. Why he did this, I don’t know. How I don’t know either, there were no holes in the box to see out of. Of course I took a photo.
