    Berlin's Dog Salons

    News from the Arctic

    Who remembers stouf? Most of you should, as this dude - known among the scientific let's-take-a-boat-trip-to-the-arctic community as Stéphane T.s - won the 1000th LomoLocation contest. He submitted a plethora of neat images from his last trip to the Canadian Arctic and absolutely convinced our contest jury.

  • TV tip: Fred Lebain on ARTE

    written by severin on 2008-06-02 in #news

    Who remembers Fred Lebain? This Paris-based photographer is well known amongst Lomographers for his fabulous <i>Mes vacances avec Holga</i> photo book. Last week I accidentally stumbled across a TV program called "Künstler Hautnah/l'art et la manière" on French/German TV-channel ARTE. The program was dedicated to Fred Lebain; in a 25 minute feature you get an insight into his work and life - including the work on "Mes vacances avec Holga", the photobook "Irasshaimase" on Japan where he used mostly cross-processed photos, and a recent project on still-life photography with chocolate-covered objects. Definitely recommendable to anyone interested in creative analogue photography (that should be you)!

    Anywhere in Vienna,tall_building

    Wherever you go and want to have a real view of the city you're visiting, you gotta check out the roof of a building. In Vienna, I recommend you to get into preferably old houses, mount up to the highest floor and check out if there is a little door or ladder that goes up to the rooftop.....

    Stadthallenbad (Vienna)

    Alright, so I like to swim. Actually I prefer doing it outside, but what do you wanna do in cold cold winter? RRRight, hitting the Stadthallenbad. It`s deadly cheap (2,50 day card for students) and also, like the Stadionbad in summer, an amazing Austrian socio-cultural frying pan.

  • Stadionbad (Vienna)

    Stadionbad (Vienna)

    One of my favorite summer locations in Vienna, the Stadionbad is located in the heart of Vienna's Prater. Be sure to drop by this amazing swimming area under the blue sky, including 4 or 5 pools, lots of trees and green, a real wave-simulator and most importantly amazing Lomographic objects: right here the center of young proletarian-Austrian bathing culture is at home.

  • Food market at Barbés

    Food market at Barbés

    If you`re in Paris for a longer time, there`s no way getting round the markets here. My favourite market is the one at Barb`s every Saturday and Wednesday, a magic place where delicious fruits and vegetables, orientalic marketing strategies and dirt are somehow mixed into a tasty cocktail. Be sure to go there between 1 and 2 on the afternoon for supercheapo offers (2 kilo 1 euro yeah!). Also check out the other stuff they sell and have a look at the electric glittering womens underwear from Syria. On your way back home, be sure to go by TATI on the corner and have some converse shoes for 10 eurobucks. There are lots of wedding shops with unforgettable shoe designs for men and women too. If you want to take pictures on the market, be sure to do it secretely (special hip shot mission) or to ask very

  • Neues Institutsgebäude NIG

    Neues Institutsgebäude NIG

    If you`re into late 70's asbest-architecture, this is the place for you. Some clear instructions: enter this University building preferably in the evening when there are no more lazy students around. Have a 50 cent coffee at one of the automats. Say hi to one of the people lying around there. Go to the entrance hall again and get ready for an unforgettable adventure! Step into the grand PATERNOSTER elevator (this thing is made out of wood and goes up and down with crazy mechanics) and occupy yourself by reading the students paroles for vegan food. Get transported to 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th floor and do not descend. When you`re reaching the 5th floor, a sign (see image) will tell you to get the hell off the elevator. The sign somehow signifies that horrible things may happen. But you`ll stay and become a hero. Hold your plastic cup tight. Catch your last breath. Load your camera and take some pictures of your awestruck face. Nuff said, you`ll see for yourself, my friend!
