This is Vincent. he is my nephew and quite young with his three and a bit years, but I think big enough to have an analogue camera for christmas. He already took some shots with my LC-A, with ActionSampler and Supersampler, so he has experience in Lomography and really likes taking pictures. Is there a photography gene? Can it jump from me to him?
What delightful achievement it would be if one can mimic the painterly strokes such as Claude Monet or Vincent van Gogh! Try nature painting with the Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 Art Lens and its supreme Lumiere and Aquarelle aperture plates for one-of-a-kind bokeh and special effects.
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.
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.
First of all, I really appreciate being able to join the TEN AND ONE Residency Week in Vienna along with super cool Lomographers! We could never have any forgettable memories. The members are 11 people from 10 countries. I thought it'd be difficult to communicate with each other because of our different cultures, languages, personalities, etc. But we didn't have any worries. We respected each other, above all we are Lomographers!
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.
For most New Yorkers there are exactly two places of hell on earth: Penn Station and Times Square. However, as a photographer, Vincent Pflieger discovered the beauty in the latter and captured a peek behind the curtain of the everyday show, called Times Square.
They say art destroys lives, just the way Vincent Van Gogh met his demise. It's a stereotype that creativity happens at the expense of our sanity. It is the other way around. Art saves lives, and photography has saved much more in the modern world.
To be a photographer, you have to capture the unseen and the abstract. And when you do, you grow one step empathetic. Here we review Lomographs that straight out speak of human emotions, one befitting for our Halloween special: the look of fear.
