Born in Germany and raised in the mountains, but now residing in New York, Jessica Barthel is an awesome and talented photographer. We were thrilled to lend her a shooting prototype of the new Lomo’Instant to play with and were more than thrilled to see the results. Head past the jump to catch Jessica’s instant which are full of excitement and adventure!
Jessica Barthel is a rising star in the N.Y.C photo scene and has already had exhibitions in Berlin, Munich and New York in 2014 (one of those being at the Lomography Gallery Store New York!). She has assisted for the New York Times and has had work published in Harper’s Bazaar and Glamour. So we couldn’t resist giving her our Lomo'Instant prototype to try out last week.
