One of the most beautiful and peculiar states in Europe is in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea: the Republic of Malta archipelago. Malta’s history, geography, people, nightlife and mysteries are all features that make this place very interesting: Yopanic enjoyed living in Malta for two weeks in 2011 and made some of the best trips of his life, obviously bringing with me all my Lomo cameras!
In the Mediterranean Sea there are a lot of islands and archipelagos. Many times islands are part of main states of Europe, Africa and Middle Asia, but sometimes they could be separate states. This is the case of the Republic of Malta, one of the smallest states of the world (after the independence from UK in 1964).
Geography is only one of the features which make Malta unique. With this “Malta Series” I’m going to tell you about all trips I made and about all places is worth to visit, if you’re planning to go there. The most important thing I’d like to point out is how Lomography perfectly integrated in my trip, visiting one of the most peculiar state I’ve ever visited.

Defining me is quite difficult, but I’ll try to give you all a brief description of my life. I’m a Medicine and Surgery student and a Emergency Ambulance Rescuer, but I’ve got a lot of other passions and hobbies.
- As a writer, maybe you read my article about the Epson V500 and about scanning tips; I usually write articles because I like to share my experience with other people: Lomography users helped me a lot to understand the basics of film photography, so I think it’s the moment to return the favor the community made me.
- As a film photography enthusiast, you will soon discover a lot of things about my style.
- As an artist, I’m a photographer: many people started asking me and commissioning me some photo shootings. It was great to discover that people loved what and how I love shooting: I still cannot pay the bills with my photographic works, but I hope to improve myself day after day.
