Bio:

Hi, my name is Marigel (aka Makny). I'm from Mexico and ever since i was a little girl I’ve loved photography (I think it’s something in my genes). 4 years ago I moved to Madrid to study a professional course in Analogue Photography. I bought my first Lomography camera (the Colorsplash) for my graduation, and since then I have been using all the Lomo cameras.

  • What do you most love about the Lubitel?

    My first Lubitel was a Lubitel 166B and I love it, but the first time I looked through the Viewfinder of the Lubitel 166+ I fell in love with this new model. And the option to use the Lubikin (the Lubitel’s 35mm conversion kit) is just great, even though I confess I prefer the medium format. The best thing about the Lubitel is that it is a TLR, you have a Lomo Lens and it’s really easy to use.

  • Sum up the camera in 5 words.

    Medium-format, soul-camera, lomographic, shoot and rewind.

  • Your advice to future Lubitel shooters.

    Start with the easy, medium format, high speed film and a sunny day and most importantly have fun and enjoy your camera. If you have a light meter use it!! It's really helpful.

  • If you could be anywhere, doing anything, right now V where would it be and what would you do?

    On my next vacation I'm going to Mexico and I want to go to Xilitla (The pools) which is a garden that has waterfalls and pools interlaced with towering surrealist sculptures made of concrete... It's an amazing place and I know my Lubitel will love it.

  • If you could give a Lubitel to anyone in the world (as a gift), who would it be?

    To my brother. He’s an architect and an artist and I know he would do a really good job with the Lubi.

  • Which Lubitel film format do you prefer, 35mm, square, rectangular or panoramic?

    Medium format!!!

  • How can a Lubitel change your approach to photography or life in general?

    With the Lubitel you really get to shoot from the hip.

  • If you had to describe your feelings towards your Lubitel with a song lyric, what lyric would you choose?

    Do You Believe in Magik by The Lovin' Spoonful.

    I don't like rainy days...
