Art and Culture: Before the Design Week


From Tuesday, April 17 to Friday, April 21, there was a Design Week in the Brera district of Milan (the same place where the Lomography Store is located in the city). I was one of the ten selected lomo-reporters for this event. Here some images taken before the beginning of the exposition!

Monday, April 17. As a selected lomo-reporter for Design Week in Milano, I began to take photos to document the incoming event. For the whole week I used a Lomo LC-A, an LCA+RL and a Praktica MTL 50 with a Pentacon 50/1,8 lens. The first day, everything was closed as they were preparing all the things for the event. So I took some photos of the urban furniture prepared for the event, a little piece of the artistic design which is typical of the Brera district.

But the most important thing for me was that this event was a great occasion to meet new friends!
