Sniezynka Early last year I met a Hungarian girl called Fruzsi. We actually first talked on-line, then decided to meet. She is a crazy, talented artist who paints, photographs, sculpts, creates jewellery and does glass-blowing. Despite my initial shyness around such a bubbly and active person, we got along well. We’ve met up several times for photo-days, mainly around the city and Botanical Gardens. This image was taken on our most productive get-together, when we discovered an empty warehouse with a stage and a bunch of chairs. It’s another double exposure (I have a bit of thing for those), possibly my most successful one yet. Fruzsi told me that when she was little one of her nicknames in Hungarian was Fruzsika. This reminded me of the word ‘sniezynka’, hence the title. The word actually means ‘snowflake’ in Russian and Polish.

about the photographer

Véra Ada Daye is a 20-year-old language student interested in photography and linguistics. Whilst the latter is the main focus of her career, she considers picture-making as her creative self. As an experimental photographer, she works with as many formats as possible, including digital, 35mm and 60mm film cameras, as well as instant. She processes her work both on computer and in the dark-room, and is fascinated by multiple exposures and expired film. You can view her work online at veraada.deviantart.com.
