David Arquette is an actor, entrepreneur, and toy-collector extraordinaire. He has been in films such as Eight-Legged Freaks, Hamlet 2, and of course the Scream films. Coming soon he is launching a brand new line of clothing called Propr with some friends. David was happy to take some shots with the Lomo LC-A+ and share his photos and thoughts with us.

REAL NAME: David Arquette. I don’t have a middle name and I’ve always wanted one. It’s a sore spot
CITY: Los Angeles
COUNTRY: USA

How long have you been a Lomographer (or are you new to this whole thing)?
David Arquette: I’ve taken quite a few Lomo pictures. Everything from the color flash version to the four pictures to the Horizon. I can’t find my Horizon, though, and I may kill somebody.

Describe the Lomo LC-A+ in five words
DA: It makes anyone an artist.

The strangest, funniest, or hands-down greatest photographic/Lomographic encounter that you have ever had
DA: I was gonna take a picture of this homeless guy but he looked at me and said, “Hey! What are you doing?” I said, “I was gonna take your picture.” He said, “But I’m homeless.” I felt like shit. I gave him some money but I still felt pretty shitty.

If your photos shown here could have a soundtrack of three songs, what would they be (song title & artist please).
DA:

  • Isn’t She Lovely – Stevie Wonder
  • Steal My Kisses – Ben Harper
  • Three Little Birdies – Bob Marley

Tell us a little bit about your upcoming clothing line.
DA: I started it with Ben Harper and David Bedwell because we all share a similar philosophy on clothing, plus we’re all good buddies. It’s functional clothing with vintage details, but with a very contemporary look and feel. In other words, it’s magic.

http://www.proprclothing.com/

You’re notorious for your toy collection… is there any one piece in your collection that lights you up more than any other?
DA: My Effanbe Legends Series Liberace doll is pretty choice. And then my grandfather’s Charley Weaver bartender.

If you could be anywhere in the world right now with a camera and a bag full of film, where would you go?
DA: Tokyo. I’ve never been, but I have a feeling that if I went I might never come back.

The one person (living or deceased) who you would most like to photograph?
DA: My parents so I’d get to see them again. (Gasp. Sob. Hold on, gimme a minute…) On second thought, Liberace.

Analog or digital? Which world would you rather live in?
DA: Honestly, I think it’s great that we live in a world with both. But, if I was forced to choose – analog. But those would be some slow-ass computers.

Your advice to future Lomo LC-A+ shooters?
DA: Have fun. Be free. Don’t shoot homeless people.
