The Opera is of course an acquired taste. But a visit to Vienna is incomplete wihtout watching at least one show!
At the very end of such an exciting day there’s nothing better than a relaxing visit to the opera. We know it sounds a bit old-fashioned, but the opera is a nice place. Plus you can enter really cheaply. The show usually starts at 7 or 7.30 PM. We recommend you to arrive between 6 and 6.30 PM at the opera and go for standing room tickets (2,50 Euros!). Usually there’s a queue of people who go for the same cheap tickets as you, but if you’re early enough you can get what you want. If the show is not too crowded you can also try to catch a seat as soon as the doors close. Enjoy the opera! It’s a great venue and extraordinary for taking pictures too.

The TEN AND ONE Residency Week has been very intense and full of activities. From 11 to 18 November, we did LomoWalks around Vienna, guided visits to museums and magazine editorial office, a workshop, a trip to Bratislava, worked on our LomoWall and of course LomoLunch and LomoDinner. We had the opportunity to attend a Cyanotype Workshop at Lomography Head Quarter held by Michael Wuermer, a young and nice photographer and printer.
On the fourth day of Residency Week in Vienna, Lomography organized a day trip to Bratislava for us. The capital of Slovakia is only an hour away from Vienna by train so the trip turned out to be a wonderful idea. We were supposed to meet on the main railway station Hauptbahnhof.
We officially launched Snapshots of a Happy Childhood Exhibition on September 5 but don't worry, you can still visit us at the remaining legs of the exhibition at S Maison at Conrad Hotel from September 10 to 16 and at SM Aura Premier from September 17 to 24.
It's been over a month since I left Vienna after spending a fantastic week with all the 2016 TEN AND ONE winners. Looking back at the photos I captured brings a smile to my face as I remember the fun memories of the experience I had with my fellow Lomographers.
I have come back after a week of my TEN AND ONE Artistic Residency at Lomography HQ in Vienna with my head full of ideas and projects that I would like to start and try out. By the end of the week I have a book (almost) full of tips, anecdotes and pure Lomographic love.
Referred to as the generation of information, film photography caught the attention of today's youth. At least this is the case with Vietnam, where there are lots of vocal and active users of film who are in their teens and early 20s.
I was fortunate enough to be chosen as one of the winners in the Monochrome category of the ﬁrst ever Lomography TEN AND ONE photography competition. After a Residency Week in Vienna I came to the following conclusions about the essence of photography.
One of the many great names in photographic history that ought to be remembered is Maria Austria, a profound figure of the neorealist photography movement. Visit her showcase in Berlin this coming October.
