Featured JPG Member: Yi-Chuan Lu
Posted by Christi Ginger — 4 Oct 2007
We're always on the look-out for JPG members with distinct and interesting styles, and we're so thrilled to find Yi-Chuan Lu. Her distorted Holga shots make you feel like you're in a full-color dream and we're loving the water influence in her work. In fact, we can't seem to find a photograph of hers we don't love.
We decided to find out a bit more about Yi-Chuan Lu and her inspiration:
Name: Yi-Chuan Lu
I love to shoot: Everything when I first see it. The first impression is more real.
My day job: Working, working, and working in Advertising Production.
My favorite camera: Holga. I bought it two years ago. I like the atmosphere taken by Holga, like walking into an imaginary dream.
I've found unexpected inspiration: Discussing things with friends and reading magazines. Everything in life is my inspiration. Even if it's a small thing.
My dream photo location: Rain forests and the Iguazu Falls. I like hot weather and places full of water and animals.
My deepest fear: Snakes. They are really disgusting.
I listen to: Gypsy music and Goran Bregovic. I love tango music too.
The last thing I shot: An acrobatics show from France, called 'Compagnie Transe Express'. It is an amazing show. They stood on cable wire and beat drums. It is dangerous and wonderful.
I love jpg because: The shots in JPG are simple and powerful. Less is more.
I can't wait to: Have a long vacation and take a tour. Take pictures everyday.
