The zoo quarter in Düsseldorf has his name from the old zoo who was destroyed in the second world war. Now there is only a parc left. I have no idea how often I passed the train stop Düsseldorf zoo until I realized that there's no zoo in town!
The name cames traditional from a zoo who had been there years befor. It started in 1876, motivated by the zoologist and animal author Alfred Brehm, who gave the name to the street Brehmstrasse. In the second world war, in the year 1943, the zoo was destroyed. 1951 the area was rebuilt to the zoo park that exists today, but which is only a park.
The zoo quarter is located in the area of “Düsseldorf-Düsseltal:”http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D%C3%BCsseldorf-D%C3%BCsseltal It is for people who have a bit more money to pay their rent or to buy a flat directly. It has a good transport connection to trains, trams and busses. Last time I had been in the zoo quarter of Düsseldorf, it was very cold an snowy. Here a few winter shoots for you!
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.
Sonja started her analog adventures during her teenage years. She took her first film photographs when she was 13 and has been in love with the magic of the process since. Her idea of a perfect day involves developing film rolls while listening to jazz and having a cup of tea in between. In this interview, she recalls about her experience with her first Lomography camera, a Holga 120 CFN.
This article is dedicated to Serge Moulinier, a largely unknown French photographer who won one of the most important prizes in France with a book on Greek architecture. Strangely, few information can be found on the Internet about this great photographer whose work had also been published in an important essay written by the famous John Szarkowski, former Director of Photography at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
C.S Muncy is a New York City-based freelance photojournalist and a fellow LomoAmigo who tested and reviewed the LomoChrome Turquoise film. The rolls of film were put to good use; the resulting shots were simply stunning.
