"I have been living in Portland for about 8 years now, off and on and it does feel like home. It is a great place to come back to after traveling. But I think I am happiest on the road or traveling, it feels kind of second nature to me," explains Portland-based photographer Jeff Luker.
Happy new year from the Lomography team! We're excited to announce our very first Lomo'instant Automat workshop, as well as an LC-A+ workshop & a rare Lomography camera Q&A. Book your space now and start the new year in analogue.
