In 'Welcome' a talk given by Simona Pop at PechaKucha London Vol 12, Simona definitely pops!

Simona takes us on a weird and wacky tour through all things that represent 'Welcome' to her - such as the PINEAPPLE!! - Any guest who was invited to a party where a whole pineapple was displayed, knew that no expense was spared in guaranteeing the guests' enjoyment. It was this that made the crowned fruit the high symbol of social events and became the meaning of welcome, friendship, and hospitality.

Zizina is a designer with a passion for all things creative - architecture, photography, art, design, travel - you name it! She works in architectural practice and uses the rest of her time to make photographs. Photography has become second nature for Zizina. It is an essential part of her 'storytelling' which involves preparing the film stock, shooting, developing negatives, scanning and archiving. She considers all parts as one creative approach to photography.
