The dressing is a mixture of spices and other condiments to enhance or add flavour to a product such as my roll of Fuji Superia 100 ASA.
For those who know me, perhaps you already heard about my obsession with the experiments and with adding other products to my pictures, salt water, bleach and soap have had the pleasure of tasting my reels.
This time it was vinegar turn. In previous rolls I had already tried to spot a movie with drops of vinegar, but in those cases the effect was negligible. Then I decided to go a little further and after spending a weekend in the Delta del Llobregat taking pictures of the planes and trees, I wanted to let the imagination run.
Steps to follow:
1. When I was rewinding the spool I opened the lid of the Lomo LC-A + a few times, so they were spots of light.
2. When I finished to rewind it, I put the reel in vinegar for 1 day.
3. The next day I left the reel to dry a bit and after a few hours I went to my darkroom and I followed the usual process.
4. This time I decided not to clean the reel, so I just wiped it, I broke it to make it without the canister (because there was dirty vinegar) and might get wet again.
5. I put the spool rolled into a small black box with a note warning that could not be opened and then brought it to the photolab.

The Bauhaus is more known as a school of minimalist design and architecture, mostly relying on the essential and non-ornamental aesthetics. But who would have known these Bauhaus folk can play dress-up with these retro-futuristic shindig get-ups?
The ambiance is a crucial factor to consider when shooting photographs as light, color, and texture make up the overall visual aesthetic of an image. The Lobster Redscale 110 does not only bathe pictures in striking red but in other hues as well.

物の哀れ - Mono no Aware is translated as "a sensitivity to ephemera," the feeling that nothing is permanent and things can only be used for a short time. Check out the mixed-media work by Gabriella and Marlize as interpenetration to this feeling.
In Japanese aesthetics, the "floating world" refers to the vague world of beauty and transient feelings found in a picture. Such is with the photography of Sarolta Gyoker, whose images seem to be all too surreal to be ever found in gritty reality.
