I was over the moon when I saw the email 'You are one of our prophency winners'! I swear my heart skipped a few beats! From that day onwards, I daydreamed of the trip, running through the wardrobe for my summer-fashion-parade in Europe and stocking up on my films!
It was 9 years since I last visited Europe and I was super excited about this, especially as I was going to visit Lomography HQ! I also took the chance to extend my trip to travel around Central Europe – I’ve always wanted to visit, so thank you Lomography for granting my wish!
First Stop: Budapest
Melk Abbey & Krems – Just a few hours outside Vienna
I love Melk Abbey and especially, Krems, a peaceful quaint town.
Vienna – Ffinally!
Such a chic city with a vibrant arts scene, chic people enjoying a high quality of life. Lomo folks in Vienna, I am so chic-fully jealous of you!

Branded as "The Reanimated Film," KONO! Film is hand-rolled and made of special materials which are rarely (or never) produced for "normal“ photography. Rather, the materials were intended for the motion picture industry and the results can vary depending on how the film is used. Learn more in this interview with the founder of KONO! Film, Uwe Mimoun.
In the early part of the 19th century, lantern shows were the equivalent of movies. Photographs were hand-printed or transferred on glass plates, which were then projected on to a wall or cloth screen.
Mel Brackstone introduced herself as an "old woman with a love of the surreal." Her energy is palpable; with the soft delicacy in her photos, she comes across as an old soul that sees through young eyes. She is self taught and lives in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, She discovered the Petzval Lens in 2014.
