This is my local shopping street. It has fabulous restaurants, boutiques, pubs, and individual shops, and a brilliant community-run supermarket, The People’s Supermarket, and my favourite cafe, Espresso Rooms. With Corams Fields at the top of the road, Dickens House ’round the corner, and Great Ormond St. Hospital, and Goodenough College not far away, it’s an interesting and historically significant crossroad in London where east meets west.
Irene was born and raised in Larnaca, Cyprus. She studied Audio and Video Production in Cyprus and Photography in Italy. She returned to Cyprus and worked as a photojournalist for many years, until 2011, when she decided to open up a little photography shop and introduce Lomography to the locals. She's been the Lomography Authorized Dealer ever since. She is known for her love for analog and people call her "Khal-lomo" (a reference to Game of Thrones' Khaleesi = Queen)!
Aside from photographs, intrepid travelers turn to local markets for one-of-a-kind mementos to remember their adventure by. Here are some unique souvenirs that lomographer spotted during their adventures.
Sometimes it's not the street photographer who finds the signs and symbols during a street grind; sometimes, it's the city who finds you, and it's calling out, beckoning to be photographed through the subtlest of words. Let the Lomo'Instant Square guide your fingers to the written words.
