Partially inspired by the uniformity and precision of specimens in a lab, this method of displaying your Lomographs is a simple trick that blends both the fun and carefree feel of instant photography, with the more precise and detailed approach of 35mm.
What you will need:
*Long sewing pins (normally used to hold fabric together whilst you attempt to sew). These were inspired by the pins used in a scientific environment to help label lab subjects
Regular 35mm photos printed with a white border in either 5×7 inch or 4×6 (doesn’t matter as long as it’s uniform)
A drawing board of any other surface you don’t mind putting holes in!
How to do it:
Arrange the photos in a grid format with the white borders overlapping so only one of the white borders from each pair of photos is showing
Once fixed in place with pins, overlay an instant photo in each corner until you run out!
For a long time I was looking for a way to put instant photos and regular photos together in such a way that shows the two sides to my style of photography, fun and precision, whilst still keeping each photo largely in view! I hope you like it!
Artist Jen Zakrzewski moves through life as though it is a performance, deeply inspired by the idea that art and life can blend together almost seamlessly. Photography is at these crossroads, enabling her to carry with her a record of moments, of places she's been.

One of the biggest attractions in the "Be An Explorer" campaign is the 80-meter long LomoWall outdoors! It is designed and constructed by the team from Lomography’s headquarters. Each photo was installed one by one. Watch the behind the scenes of this massive LomoWall!
Water is synonymous to life, but everyone knows this does not apply to the vastness and depths of the Dead Sea. English photographer and wanderlust Maya Beano recollects the time she braved and swam on one of the saltiest bodies of water in the world.
