Analogue Spotlight: LomoAmigo Tim Kerr's Artistic Endeavors in Fukushima

1

We featured Tim Kerr as our LomoAmigo a few years back, when he customized and took photos with La Sardina. Tim, who is a creative multi-tasker as a musician, artist, painter, photographer, skater (among other things!) is back to share some photos he took on his recent trip to Japan.

He went to paint a mural at a kids camp in Fukushima with his friends Yusuke Hanai, HiDutch, and the kids. He was also part of two art shows in Fukushima and Tokyo.

These photos were all shot with the Diana, Holga, a Minolta Hi-Matic (which he traded with Japan Camera Hunter a painting for!), and an instant camera. He used Fuji film for the instants and bleached the negatives. For the rest of the photos, he used the Lomography CN 800 film.

So how did Tim land this amazing gig? "I was asked by my friends Yusuke and HiDutch to come to help paint a mural in Fukushima with kids at their camp. The kids were split into two groups: making a mask and making stencils for the mural. The groups were switched after a certain time so that both groups made mask and painted on the mural. I was taken surfing while there and was part of a group art show. I then went to Tokyo for a pop up show the next weekend at HenryHauz. I also went to Osaka to see the Tower Of The Sun. The whole time, I was documenting with the cameras and my cell phone ( for a digital backup ....smile)."

Thank you, Tim, for sharing your photos with us!
