My name is Vera Gotseva, but some of you may know me as Lomovera. I grabbed a pen when I was a year old, and a film camera when I was three. Later, I began to read Isaac Asimov. This apparently was destiny because as an adult I work as a journalist and a photographer, and science and technology are my passions. They led me to work in various fields like digital advertising and projects, such as the annual Sofia Science Festival. My biggest loves, however, are storytelling and nature.
Over the past 20 years of my life I have been interested in words and images. For the past 15 years I have been actively contributing to the most prominent lifestyle and technology magazines in Bulgaria. Ten years ago, I started taking pictures with a variety of cameras, exploring moments of a reality that I see, trying to keep them still forever through the use of my camera. I’ve been lucky enough to have been given the chance to show my work in a couple of exhibitions, five so far. I’ve spent t two years as editor-in-chief of Photomania, Bulgaria’s leading digital photography magazine. Lately, I’ve been busy traveling often, taking photos with my smartphone and connecting them in visual storytelling. From more than an year I'm happy to work as a freelance photographer and journalist for the most prominent media sites in Bulgaria. I'm also leading the first smartphone photography classes on the road.
Apart from the photographs published on this site, I have done visual identity for commercial clients, as well as individual portraits or series of photographs. My photos have been published in the Huffington Post, Der Spiegel, Granta, Capital light, Dnevnik, Programata and many others.
Thanks for dropping by.
