Lomography Interview: Duane Fernandez
1. Hi, Duane. Tell us a bit about yourself.
Professionally speaking, I’m a photographer and marketing consultant. I like to solve problems and create systems. I started a thing calledLeft Field Project over ten years ago and it’s basically my personal quest to understand people, success and happiness. I find human beings very interesting. I like talking to people and hearing stories. I collect media of all different shapes and sizes. I like notebooks.
2. Why do you still shoot analogue?
“Why do I still shoot digital?” would be a more entertaining question! Analogue is everything to me. From audio to visual. To answer the question, I would say because it’s the foundation, core and essence of photography. It’s a reflex. It’s like breathing.
3. What photographic equipment (cameras, films, and accessories) do you usually have in your bag?
Cameras: Hasselblad D40, Nikon D4, Lomography Colorsplash x Staple Design, Diana F+ with Instant Back, Fuji Instax Wide 210 Instant and the Diana Baby 110. Film: The X-Pro Chrome 100 35mm is my favorite, I’m playing around with the Redscale Negative Lobster 200 right now on the Diana Baby 110. I like the Color Negative 110 film, too.
