Ihme Zentrum (Center) Hannover

8

The Ihme Zentrum is a big area which was build up in 1972 in Hannover / Linden. The aim was to combine apartments to live there, office space and a shopping area - like a town in a town. There is place for nearly 3000 people to live there and by the time when they start to build it up - the construction area was the biggest one in whole over europe.

The Ihme Zentrum is a big area which was build up in 1972 in Hannover / Linden. The aim was to combine apartments to live there, office space and a shopping area – like a town in a town. There is place for nearly 3000 people to live there and by the time when they start to build it up – the construction area was the biggest one in whole over europe.

For the people who are into architecture – the style of the Ihme Zentrum is called “Brutalismus” (Hans Asplund) – just like the town hall in Boston, the Royal National Theatre in London or the Genex Tower in Belgrad. Most important material for this style: CONCRETE!

Some people will think it´s ugly, but for a true lomographer´s eye you can find quite nice areas to shoot beautiful pictures.

Since it´s under reconstruction, everybody who is around should grab a chance and shoot some pics there – it will never be the same again very soon….

    Solar Eclipses and Beyond

    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!

    Gommorah Girl: An Interview with Valerio Spada

    Valerio Spada went beyond his comfort zone and stepped right into the battlefield with his camera. He went to Naples, Italy, an area populated by the Camorra Mafia but also home to Annalisa Durante who, at the age of 14, was killed by a bullet aimed at a Camorra boss. What happened to her could've happened to any of the girls portrayed in the book Gommorah Girl. This work is about Annalisa. It's about all of the girls that, just like her, seem doomed to an unfair destiny - which, hopefully, may still change.

    Photographer Gilbert Blecken Captures Iconic Musicians on Film

    Back in the 1990s, Gilbert Blecken was a big music fan and wrote for his own small music fanzine. He would interview bands in between sound checks and take photographs of them. He was never a professional photographer or worked for a company; he simply did it for his fanzine. Twenty years on, Gilbert’s photographs have matured into an amazing documentation of some of the biggest music icons of that era. We caught up with Gilbert to ask him about these photographs and the fascinating story behind them.

    Summer Hot Spots: Blaavand, Denmark (Part Two)

    When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand, located at the Danish west coast, with my brothers and parents. I stopped going there as I grew up. In 2012 however, we hit the road again. It was my first return visit in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In part two of my journey log, I'm going to show you the pictures I took with my Lomography cameras.

    5 City vs. Nature Scenes

    Jungle, home, haven. The same words may apply to both city and nature. Though different they are linked. The city takes after the colors of flowers and animals; people mold their neighborhoods after the shapes of nature. Other similarities are accidental: the fun bit.
