Cole Lubchenko

Cole Lubchenko left his home in Saskatoon, Canada to chase the mysterious and romantic metropolis he read about in Murakami novels. Instead of talking to cats or mysterious women, Cole finds himself eating too many bowls of noodles, and drinking too many cans of craft beer. Cole also enjoys listening to and writing about music: particularly progressive metal, math-rock, and other painfully pretentious sounding genres. When he isn’t eating ramen or going to concerts, he travels around Japan taking photos and searching for new and exciting stories to tell. Portfolio website - www.colelubchenko.com
