Don’t be put off by the name, this isn’t some pretentious literary hangout for anti-lads. In fact, there are no books in sight. Only alcohol and a table tennis table. And after a heavy meal, what better thing to do but to work up a sweat playing some ping pong. Arrive early to plant yourself firmly on the table, and if anyone asks if they can play, insist that it’s winner stays on. If you’re good enough, then there’s no reason why you won’t be able to stay on the table all night or until you get bored.
We first came across Ryu Voelkel while he was shooting for his photography book about the World Cup in Brazil. His use of Aerochrome Film for the project especially caught our attention. Now the Berlin-based sports photographer has finished his book and is ready for the next challenge: testing the Petzval at a football match.
Weeks have passed and yet Germans are still celebrating the victory of their heroic football team. Shortly before the World Cup started, we took notice of an interesting photography project on Kickstarter. Berlin-based sports photographer Ryu Voelkel called for help to create a football photography book like no other. The campaign was successfully funded. Ryu made his way to Brazil and came back with amazing shots including some very special Kodak Aerochrome photographs. Meet Ryu and learn more about him and his special moments at the WC 2014.
With just a little over a week left before his Kickstarter project ends, the photographer opens up about his upcoming coffee table book that centers on a collection of medium format snapshots of tattooed backs of legs of women captured with Diana cameras.

The skies were busy with magic today — or maybe it was just the solar eclipse that caused all that ruckus? Decked out in space-age goggles and other various sun viewing paraphernalia, groups of people gathered as the moon moved between the sun and the earth this morning across Europe. Only a few lucky folks witnessed the total eclipse, and here at Vienna HQ, the greatest moment of the partial eclipse happened at 10:45 A.M. and lasted only a few minutes. We stopped everything we were doing to join the sky watchers crew and share in this astonishing moment. Check out these brilliant solar-inspired shots to celebrate the occasion!
