Awesome Albums: Somewhere only we know by palkina

2014-06-13

Hold on tight! Today’s Awesome Album is going to be a bumpy ride!

First glance at *palkina's* album *Somewhere only we know* has got us reassessing everything we know about making an artistic overlapping image. Using a Lomo LC-A+ loaded with Lomography X-Pro Slide 200, she took overlapping photos of these florid structures at different angles and distances, making them shake with the sheer force of her creative mind and the camera’s multiple exposure function.

Amusing enough, these brilliant photographs were taken in Saint Petersburg, Russian Federation, the birthplace of the legendary LC-A, which inspired the creation of the camera she used!

The Awesome Albums series is exactly what it says on the tin — it’s a love letter of sorts from the Editors addressed to user-uploaded albums that had caught their eye and had inadvertently fallen in love with. Please understand though, they’re really just here to express their love and nothing more.

    "The overarching theme is seeing people in adverse conditions take matters into their own hands and still find the energy to go dancing or fall in love or create art," Astronautalis said of his new album. We found that pretty inspiring, so we teamed up with him for a Rumble competition based on that idea.

    Brazil is an awesome country for traveling. There's so much to explore, each place very different from one another.
