We’ve invited five different personalities to collaborate with Lomography for our special line of Lomography T-shirts!
Lucija Grabić used to be a professional basketball player. In 2003, a full scholarship offer convinced her to put her architecture studies in Vienna University of Technology on hold, and move to Florida for a few years where she took up graphic design. In 2005 she decided to retire from basketball, return to Vienna, and continue her architecture studies.
Please tell us something about yourself.
I am Lucija, an Austrian citizen. I was a Croatian citizen also though. I lived in Zagreb and I’ve also lived in Vienna. In between I also lived for some time in Florida. I am an architect. I used to be a graphic design student. I also used to be Lucija, the basketball player. In between, I used to be a bad high school student, but a good basketball player. I was a problematic teenager, but a ‘nerdy’ university student.
