Every year the city of Toronto hosts a weekend event called Doors Open where 150 buildings of architectural & cultural interest open their doors to the public. This year the theme of Doors Open was photography & Lomography was invited to give a workshop at City Hall.
The Toronto team packed up a whole lot of Diana’s, 120 film, books, lenses, instant backs & everything Diana! Check out the pics! Needless to say, we had a blast!
Irene was born and raised in Larnaca, Cyprus. She studied Audio and Video Production in Cyprus and Photography in Italy. She returned to Cyprus and worked as a photojournalist for many years, until 2011, when she decided to open up a little photography shop and introduce Lomography to the locals. She's been the Lomography Authorized Dealer ever since. She is known for her love for analog and people call her "Khal-lomo" (a reference to Game of Thrones' Khaleesi = Queen)!

The TEN AND ONE Residency Week has been very intense and full of activities. From 11 to 18 November, we did LomoWalks around Vienna, guided visits to museums and magazine editorial office, a workshop, a trip to Bratislava, worked on our LomoWall and of course LomoLunch and LomoDinner. We had the opportunity to attend a Cyanotype Workshop at Lomography Head Quarter held by Michael Wuermer, a young and nice photographer and printer.
