Nightcrawler: Insecure Men, Roya, Triathalon and Cutouts

Editor’s Note: After first coming across Luis Lucio‘s work on the people’s platform, Instagram, we got in touch with him in hopes of having him contribute and share his phenomenal and captivating work with our readers. Below are the photos Luis took using his own equipment, as well as some lomography stuff (including their 35mm film) during one night in Brooklyn, starting at Sunnyvale we saw Cutouts and Triathalon before heading to Baby’s All Right where we saw Roya and Insecure Men. In the previous installment of this series Luis captured a day at South Street Seaport Festival.


I started taking pictures of bands because I was going to a lot of shows with my roommate. When it first started I was still doing editorials and things that require a model but with that—you do a shoot and then you never know when the next one is, it could be a while. Taking pictures was really a way for me to keep shooting. 

Concerts were also a good way for me to to use stereoscopic photography, the technique that I’m obsessed with. The nature of a live show means movement which is ideal for it plus if I was going to be taking photos I didn’t see the point in taking ones that I feel like anyone else could have taken. A lot of people also think it’s an app, I get asked what app it is probably about once a week.

My work is done on film but I don’t particularly think that film is better. If I had started shooting on digital I would have just shot on that, but I didn’t have that luck. Now I don’t like digital because I’ve been shooting on film for a long time—my first camera was 10 years ago—and I’ve only ever used film. I’ve been using Lomography film for four years, it’s the only one that really captures the colors and tones so it’s the only color film I use for my live photos. It’s also really cheap.

But using an analogue camera, it doesn’t add anything extra, it doesn’t add any extra value to my photograph. You could get a good picture with your iPhone 4 I guess, with a 50 year old camera that uses film or the newest digital one. It’s not about the equipment it’s about how you’re using it.
