“He is a lomographer lost between films and developments, a lomoarch whose lomopath is delimited by b&w nostalgic albums. He lives in an inspiring city surrounded by the ideal environment to stimulate creativity and he captures this essence in each frame. Here comes our next beloved LomoArch: borbapereira!”

“*How do you see the bond between Lomography and Architecture?* Both capture the essence of a moment. In architecture, it captures the essence of the time of its creation. It’s almost like a snapshot. You freeze in time the zeitgeist of that moment. Another thing is that, after the architecture design is complete, it will take a lot of time to be built. Until there, the architect will not fully experience his design. You always will be surprised by the unexpected result of one detail, or one angle that you see the building or its inner space that you could not realize before. It is like waiting to develop a film and see the unpredictable results."
