As a snowboard-aficionado I just cannot help but introduce my favorite snowpark: The Lonplaypark in Obertauern / Salzburg. It might not be big, but the shaper’s imagination totally make up for that!
Obertauern is truly a great ski resort. In the middle of Salzburg, 1740 – 2526 meters above sea level, snow from November to May, apre ski at 4 o clock in the afternoon.
But – to be honest – I actually never make it to the center and will not be able to tell you about drunk tourists on ale-benches. I usually take the first exit to the left (assuming you are coming from Salzburg) and find myself in the so called Longplaypark. A snowpark after my fancy.
Go up the chairlift and find kickers and boxes for both beginners and let’s call it semi-professional snowboarders and free-skiers. Find a wallride and a tree trunk. Find yourself having a good time and forgetting about the same. Find yourself sad when the chairlift takes you up the mountain the last time at 4.30 pm. Find yourself tired but fully laid back when you sip at your radler at the end of that day.
I’ve been shooting analogue as long as I can remember but it wasn’t until a few months ago that I was introduced to instant photography. So, you can imagine when I was given the chance to try out the recently introduced Lomo’Instant Wide, I “instantly” said yes and hit the streets of Vienna!

It is possible to fear solitude. But of its many forms, I only fear the kind that goes unnoticed, the one you cannot share with other people. Photography, with its end goal of being seen, helps ease this kind of solitude.
Jack Lowe has been traveling round the UK with the aim to shoot every RNLI post using Wet Plate Collodion photography. The Lifeboat Station Project photography is a five-year photographic mission that makes use of a painstaking process. It is a fascinating, much talked about project that deserves to be documented, not just through words but through images as well.
When a photographer encounters a pair, an instinct rushes in, "Is this a special, intimate moment I just stumbled on?" Or else, those accidents of two objects, two birds, two swaying plants camping together especially for your photo. This might not be the case, but it's still a pleasant thing for patterns and quirks to find their way into an everyday shot.

Lomography NYC chats with indie musician Zuli and his tour photographer Dave about experiences on the road, like how a broken down van was not so great in the moment but ended up making for a really great photo, and shooting with their new favorite camera, the Sprocket Rocket!
The Petzval 85 and 58 Lenses remain favorites among Lomographers because of the quality bokeh, perfect for making dreamy portraits, à la classic paintings. But portraiture is more than just showing off a pretty face in a classic, vertical orientation: It's a marriage of elements. Think of it in terms of attitude and personality.
In the hands of those capable wielding it, art can be a powerful weapon. With it, for one, creation of fantastical realms far removed from the one we live in is entirely possible. Through collage making, Eugenia Loli builds such worlds that invite the audience not only to marvel at them but also, and most importantly, to see through the hodgepodge of images to find meaning and formulate interpretations.
It's human nature to be restless and imaginative. The real may be interpreted as what one sees or how one sees something. For the daydreamer, a scene from nature transforms into a canvas. Suddenly a field makes room for chemical coloring, all those anachronistic streaks that somehow look right. Or else, those beautiful colors amplified or subdued to their most pictorial shades. All in the world of trial-and-process film photography.
