Neues Institutsgebäude NIG

1

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!

    Lomography's Little Lessons: Film Speed

    Sometime between 6,000 and 10,000 years ago, a boy in northern Afghanistan was born with a gene mutation that hindered his eyes from producing melanin and thus from turning brown. He had blue eyes. If you see someone with blue eyes today, he is a descendant of this unlucky fellow. I am one of those weird folks and apart from feeling like a mutant and being Angelina Jolie’s secret sister, I am sensitive to light like an ISO 6,400 film.

    Photographic Pairs

    When a photographer encounters a pair, an instinct rushes in, "Is this a special, intimate moment I just stumbled on?" Or else, those accidents of two objects, two birds, two swaying plants camping together especially for your photo. This might not be the case, but it's still a pleasant thing for patterns and quirks to find their way into an everyday shot.
