“Fisheye Adventure” is my personal experience in Havana, Istanbul and Deoghar (India). All of the pictures that you’ll see were taken with my with my Lomo Fisheye 1 Camera. I do not think of myself as a photographer but rather as a visual artist using a variety of media to express myself. I jump from my travelling experiences to photography adventures, then add some stories behind the pictures, share within different social networks and blogs etc. I also do some postproduction with the fisheye pictures – interactive animations, cards, movie and so on.”Lomography is a process which surprises you” Vera, a friend of mine who showed to me the world of Lomography, said.

Raycho Stanev lives and works in Sofia. He is a visual artist and designer whose work includes various art installations, illustrations, photography, audio and video projects presented in Bulgaria, United Kingdom, Switzerland, Italy, Norway, Turkey, Cuba and India. Raycho’s installations are reflecting past and present, personal memories, heritage (communist) policies and urban cultures.

The Lomography Gallery Store Berlin is located in the heart of Berlin, on the famous Friedrichstrasse in Mitte. Within these 200 square metres, all of lomographic dreams are about to come true. And be prepared for your eyes to bulge from their sockets, as we house Berlin’s second most famous wall: Germany’s biggest ever LomoWall, with more than 12,000 of Berlin’s finest Lomographs. It is the meeting point for Lomographers throughout the country and a melting pot of collective creative genius.
