Looking for Hidden LomoScientists

5

For this new series, I'm looking for scientist lomographers in the community. I'll try to let you get to know them better through a series of interviews and their favorite photos.

Name: Rocío de Miguel.
Location: Zaragoza, but soon you’ll find me near Paris
Job: Almost a doctor in Biochemistry and planning my post-doc in France

I’ve always thought that there were few scientists in the lomo community, or at least I’ve always thought that we didn’t make ourselves known. I always get a nice surprise when I meet other lab rats around.

Inspired by the Just Another LomoArch series by alia- I decided to look for those hidden lomoscientists and share with them and with you their tips, their hobbies and the way they see analogue photography.

My main interest is to know how they combine photgraphy and science. I have very artistic hobbies, like drawing or writing, and, of course, photography, and, even though sciences are seen as inflexible disciplines, I think that science needs lot of imagination and creativity. If it wasn’t like this we would repeat the same experiment over and over and won’t get any results. Can you imagine taking the same photo over and over without changing light, focus or composition? On the other hand, I’ve never (or not often) taken my cameras to the lab, that’s why I want to know about my other colleagues’ point of view. I’d also like to know if they ever dared with a specially unusual lomoexperiment and if they’d like to share it with us. I want to try them all!

What about you? Are you a lomoscientist in hiding? Contact me and introduce yourself to the rest of the community!

    I doubt this counts but I'm an after-school science teacher (sort of like Bill Nye for hire XD), and I live in California.
