“He is a lomographer lost between films and developments, a lomoarch whose lomopath is delimited by b&w nostalgic albums. He lives in an inspiring city surrounded by the ideal environment to stimulate creativity and he captures this essence in each frame. Here comes our next beloved LomoArch: borbapereira!”
“*How do you see the bond between Lomography and Architecture?* Both capture the essence of a moment. In architecture, it captures the essence of the time of its creation. It’s almost like a snapshot. You freeze in time the zeitgeist of that moment. Another thing is that, after the architecture design is complete, it will take a lot of time to be built. Until there, the architect will not fully experience his design. You always will be surprised by the unexpected result of one detail, or one angle that you see the building or its inner space that you could not realize before. It is like waiting to develop a film and see the unpredictable results."
We picked this submission because of dedication—borbapereira’s dedication to combining his two passions and alia’s dedication to keeping up with her LomoArch series! Who knew Lomography and architecture went so well together?

Here’s what happens before we interview a photographer. We gush about the work though we have yet to find out the cameras and processes behind the brilliant composition or the light architecture. And even when they haven’t used a Lomo camera, we feature them anyway. But every once in a while comes a pro who uses one of our premium lenses at work and our fun cameras off-duty. This makes us mighty glad, more so when their images are good and worth sharing. We count cinematographer Michal Dabal's work among them.
