Name: TK (Ling Tosite Sigure Vocal & Guitar)
City: TOKYO
Country: JAPAN

Congratulations on your album release which won the Oricon awards last year! Can you please introduce yourself to the Lomography community?

Nice to meet you. I play the guitar and sing in a band called Ling Tosite Sigure. It’s a little intense.

When did you start taking pictures and how did you discover Lomography?

It was just a year ago, I think. Photographer Hirama Itaru introduced Lomography to me.

Describe the Lomo Lubitel 166+.

The camera that could capture air and light.

If you had a bag full of film, a passport to go anywhere you like and the Lubitel 166+, where would you go

I want to go wherever there are penguins!

What are your favorite films? Any tips that you can share with Lomographers?

I really liked the Lomography Color Negative 100 that I used the first time – it produced strong colours and great contrast. With the Lubitel I like to shoot with 35mm because of the sprocket holes. It gives a different perspective.

You took the Lubitel 166+ during your UK tour – care to share with us a memorable moment?

I feel that there were many memorable moments to be talked about, especially when I was taking my Lubitel abroad. Maybe, I was taking pictures so prominently . . . (Laughs) that people also took out their cameras to take pictures at the natural scenery.

Any final messages?

I love the soft feel of pictures from film and how each roll has its own unique characteristics. For multiple exposure film, sometimes light leak is everything. I try to bring light and joy; it’s nice to take photographs.
