The sixth issue of Romka Magazine is now out! This is especially exciting because my boyfriend Arun Sood’s photograph is featured and the person depicted is my good friend Andre D. Singleton. Romka is a photography publication dedicated to publishing only images of really meaningful experiences. They are less concerned about perfect techniques and more about the individual story behind each photograph. This specific photo brings back a lot of memories for me. It was the year a bunch of us international students lived in crazy shipping containers and bonded over excitment to be in this new city.
In Arun’s words:
In 2009, I moved abroad to study in Amsterdam. Despite not knowing anyone upon arrival, I was lucky enough to move in with three great flatmates in the legendary Flat 51. Our flat became a social hub with regular parties, music and an all-round good vibe. This picture of my flatmate Andre was taken from my room and peers into the common area. It immediately reminds me of the flat’s vibrant atmosphere.
