About

 

Born in Bulgaria, spent the last 7 years moving around in Europe with my lovely Italian husband, Roberto.

We met in Budapest, Hungary while I was doing a specialisation in Hungarian language and culture. Then we moved to Milan, Italy where we spent almost three years getting an espresso in the bar and enjoying a really good pizza.

In the beginning 2015 we moved to the City of Lights, Paris  – getting a baguette from the boulangerie on the corner and watching the Eiffel Tower from our living room.

After two years, this February we decided to exchange the Parisian cityscape for the Californian bright sky, so we moved to East Bay where we are currently looking for a house.

I really do love photography. List of favourite photographers include Robert Mapplethorpe, Annie Leibovitz, Peter Lindbergh; classics like Newton, Kertesz, Capa, Bresson and one of the most inspirational – Gianni Berengo Gardin.

Whenever I go I take a camera with me. I am taking pictures with Panasonic Lumix GH5, Lumix GX7 with 14mm/F2.5 pancake lens or 35-100mm/F2.8; very occasionally I am using the original camera lens or 45-200/4.5. Since two months I am also going around everywhere with a tiny Sony RX100 iv – a great everyday companion.

Editing with Lightroom and Photoshop CC.

Other things I enjoy are:

  • Reading – here is my Goodreads profile: fiction, poetry, fat old books or kindle – I always bring at least one with me. I do read in English, Bulgarian, Italian and occasionally German
  • Traveling – I do it all the time because of my job, but also in my free time. I am always happy to visit a new city
  • Journaling and handwriting

Thanks for stopping by,

Lyubena

    Some light years ago you wrote me a message wishing me all the best for the summer in Italy with my father. Some years later Italy takes an important role in your life. Things change. Wish you all the best. ”Von Brescia nach Brescia”. E.M.Remarque.

  2. So niiiiice to hear from you!
    Life is really an unpredictable journey and I believe more and less we are those who navigate the major part, but sometimes I also cannot believe I have my life in Italy now.
    Hugs from Milano 🙂
