Mutante is a Portuguese online magazine. The concept, as the name says (Mutant) is about transformation and experimentation, something that we lomographers love.
Analogue pictures have featured in several editions of this magazine. “#3 – Black in White” features the “Série Pinhole” and in “#4 – City” there are some Fisheye and LOMO LC-A pictures, including my own. In the last edition, “#7 – Night” I also participated with an LC-A picture.
But the spotlight in this number is for the article “A Magia da Polaroid”, about an exhibition that shows several models of this brand. The exhibition “A Magia da Polaroid – Colecção Raul Cunca” was in Castelo Branco, Portugal, until 31.03.2011. The article is written in Portuguese, like the whole magazine is but I assure you that the fashion-style pictures of the Polaroid cameras and other works are worth a look even if you can’t read Portuguese.

One of the reasons why we love winter so much is because we finally get to pull out that Game of Thrones saying, "Winter is here." The thought of spending Christmas time with your loved ones and watching the snow falling will warm your heart in a second.
