I combined two of my favorite hobbies – lomography and nail art – to recycle my ruined instant photos in a creative way.
Water marbling is a technique I often apply when doing my nails. It consists of filling a small cup with water, and dropping different colours of nail polish into the cup in concentric rings. The next step is to swirl the nail polish using a tooth pick. And finally, you dip the object (in this case some ruined instant mini photos) into the swirl.
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.

I was given the Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 by Lomography to take on my vacation to Switzerland and shoot a series. Back at home, I was able to take a couple of more pictures, before I had to send this amazing art lens back.
Many among us live double lives -- a member of the labor force by day, a passionate go-getter by night. it's difficult to break into the art world when you need money -- so most of us keep our creative lives as hobbies. For the photographer, he can do a little bit of both simultaneously.

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.
