A Year in Square of Tania Blázquez Andreu

20

You can have all the reasons in the world, but Tania didn't dare to be selfish. She only has but 14 of them, at least this year...

A few months ago, our Lomo Amigo Christophe Dillinger had teamed up with us in pursuit of publishing Square Magazine's new book and asked everyone in the Lomographic community to show one’s year in square. A kind of a competition that calls for images strictly taken with the format we’re all familiar with – each attached with stories of the photographers has to tell.

On the 6 names that were selected, one of them is Tania Blázquez Andreu:

1. She + The Sea = The perfect Summer.

2. I like older people. I want to have this serenity they have, even though life is escaping.

3. Though everything is disordered, I always find the way thanks to you.

4. Bikes are for summer, like ice cream or coconut-scented sun cream. All these things can be used the rest of the year, but do not have the same meaning.

5. I never thought you were going to make me so happy.

6. Sometimes I feel like an animal, I love basic things like eat or sleep.

7. This year I plan to see the funny side to the dark side.

8. I want adventures like Don Quixote, and if I won’t have them, I’ll imagine them like he does.

9. The Butterfly Effect, you know….

10. I cannot live without pretty things.

11. The most beautiful place in the world and I’ve been there.

12. I can touch the sky with my camera. I can be a little taller.

13. Yes, sometimes you have a heart of stone.

14. Women should rule the world.

    The World According to Herr Willie: Olympiastadion Berlin

    The 2015 UEFA Champions League Final will be held at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin on June 6. It is a place full of history and is also the only football stadium with a blue track course. Some say it is the most beautiful stadium in the world, and I totally agree with them. But then agai,n I might be biased because it is the home court of my favorite team, Hertha BSC Berlin—my blue-white bloodline.

    The Go! Team in Dublin: No Flash Photography Please

    I have to admit that I’ve never liked using flash in public places. In some situations it can be distracting. Like concerts, for example. Can you imagine a live music show where people decide all of a sudden to use it at the same time?

    Fresh from the LomoLab: My Summer at a Campsite

    I prefer being outdoors whenever I go on a vacation at the seaside. For this reason, I always choose to stay at a campsite instead of a hotel. This year, I stayed at a beautiful one in the south of Italy. Here is a series of photos which I received a few days ago from the excellent LomoLab service, taken with my Sprocket Rocket. Have a look after the jump!

    Transient Living: Armitage & McMillan in Denver, Colorado

    If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!
