Konya Kebab is the name of quite a number kebab bars in Copenhagen - some good others horrible. This particular Konya Kebab is located at Nørrebrogade 106 opposite of Assistens Kirkegård and falls in the first category.
Konya Kebab is the name of quite a number kebab bars in Copenhagen – some good others horrible. This particular Konya Kebab is located at Nørrebrogade 106 opposite of Assistens Kirkegård and falls in the first category. However I wouldn’t go as far as to say that it is the best among the numerous kebab bars on Nørrebrogade – I simply wouldn’t know.
Konya Kebab serves cheap and good Middle Eastern food. Mostly döner kebab (lamb) or chicken kebab served as shawarma (what Danes would typically call ‘a kebab’) or dürüm. If you’re not that into meat you can order all dishes with falafel instead of meat. Konya Kebab is probably mostly known for its long opening hours – they are open until 6 am – which makes it one of the places where hordes of young drunk people go to get something to eat after a long night out. In my humble opinion this is where kebab bars are most interesting! People have a blast, spill their food all over themselves and act crazy. Sometimes these places even becoming pick-up spots for the last desperate singles on their way home. During the day hours all this craziness is packed away, and you can sit and enjoy your food in peace as the daily life of Nørrebrogade goes by.
What I’ve written here will (to some extend) fit most other Kebab bars on Nørrebrogade – or in Copenhagen in general, and I won’t recommend this place over others in Copenhagen. If you feel like Middle Eastern food just go to a place that looks nice. If you are on Nørrebrogade the kebab bars aren’t many steps apart, so check out a couple of places.
Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.
Traveling in Burkina Faso is quite an adventure and a fantastic photographic experience. I went to this fascinating African country at the Sahel border twice and used many different ways of transportation.
Experimentation is the bloodline of Lomography. The nucleus of the operation is an open mind. This has made digital strides possible, but even then, the movement is still beholden to film photography. The reasons range from philosophical to practical. The scope also includes three fields that make analog photography challenging—and yes, quite the daring opposite of digital ease.
Some lomographers prefer to hoard as many analog cameras their shelves and budgets can support. Some would rather keep a manageable number that they can regularly shoot with. Community member Joshua Kennedy belongs to the latter group. From 40 cameras, he downsized his collection to 13, as he puts it, "really good ones" that suit his shooting habits and style. In this interview, he breaks down his small yet dependable arsenal of vintage and handmade cameras and how an organized schedule allows him to shoot with each one on a regular basis.
The Petzval Lens was the first truly practicable portrait lens ever created and thus was the ultimate gift to early photography. We at Lomography feel that this lens and its inventor deserve some attention so here is the first of a series of articles on Joseph Petzval and the first Petzval Lens.
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
Graphic designer Johann Bottos caught the community's attention with his striking black and white landscape photographs. Previsualization is central to his photographic style. Before clicking the shutter, he tends to "wait for a particular moment or weather condition" that fits the image he has in mind. In this interview, he shares more about his passion for shooting on film as well as some of his favorite landscape images.
Kamila K Stanley is always on the cusp of an adventure. In the early part of 2015, she started inviting fellow photographers to join a collective named after a verse from "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds." And ever the curious observer, she spent some part of the year in Turkey. With a camera and reserve of 35mm films, of course.
When asked to recall the moment they first became truly interested in photography, most photographers would remember the magical feeling of picking up a hand-me-down or secondhand camera, the thrill of shooting an entire roll through, and the elation upon seeing and holding their first ever set of photographs. Caleb Savage, however, had quite a unique experience. At 10 years old, he had his first taste of working in the darkroom making prints at Boy Scout camp, thereby beginning a more than a decade-long affinity with photography.
William Helburn was one of the greatest ad photographers never quite known. His name remained anonymous behind famous ads for Coca-Cola, Buick, Revlon and Max Factor. He brought out the plush side of Kodachrome and surprised the American public with sexy humor. The credit is long overdue, but a recent book pays tribute to Helburn's vibrant career.
