We've visited the Americas and have discovered a part of Europe! But of course we would have to continue the looking for the LC-Wide Race to finally begin!
There’s always a chase but we have to cut it short — now, we’re bringing you the LC-Wide Race’s Team Europe II. A group of five fantastic Lomographers who would combine all their Lomographic wits for the biggest race in our Community. Come and meet them!
1. Denis Yakovlev or life_on_mars
Here’s Denis who was born in 1984 and permanently lives in Krasnodar in Russia. Recently, he was “climbing plant” and is now a young father. He has worked as an archivist, a manager in an erotic massage salon and is currently working at the post office in which he hopes, will help him in the LC-Wide Race!
2. Merel Groebbé or merelgroebbe
Merel describes herself as a girl who has “a passion for telling stories, whether it is through writing, photography or design.” She was trained to be a fashion designer but got addicted to photography (and Lomography) during her studies. Currently located in The Netherlands, she now spends her time serving coffee and doing what she really loves which is making stories and sharing them. In the future, she aspires to be a freelance creative who can work and combine several disciplines. A book with her poetry and photographs is a goal. Merel is super excited about the LC-Wide Race and the things that will come with it!
3. Luca De Luca or lucadeluca
Hailing from Italy, we introduce Luca who is 27 years of age. He very shortly describes himself as someone who “loves Lomography, self-portaits, vintage styles, and his Holga.” Still quite interesting for this lad, eh?
4. Andrius Mickus or dogma
Coming from the northern part of Europe we call Lithuania, we meet Andrius who has been doing Lomography since the beginning of 2008. His first camera was a Fisheye No. 2 which he received as a birthday present. When he is not taking lovely Lomographs, he works as a web creator, designer, and administrator all rolled into one!
5. Ozde Karadag or lisamariesimpson
And for our last stop, we head to the center of Istanbul where Ozde is located. 22 years young, Ozde is currently studying Psychology at Bahcesehir University located in the province of Besiktas. At the start of May 2012, she worked for three months at the Lomography Gallery Store Istanbul. She have tried using all Lomography cameras except the Horizon. She loves films, analogue devices, and working at darkrooms.
