Berlin's Famous Photoautomat

2

Take a look at my first photos with the famous Photoautomat in Berlin!

A lot of people know them, saw them once on the streets or even took photos with them, together with friends or alone.

A friend of mine took some photos, when he visited me in Berlin. Afterwards I just had to take some photos as well. Two rounds: one at Kottbusser Tor next to the Supermarket Kaisers and another at Schlesische Straße Corner Falkensteinstraße. The principle is familiar to everyone, similar to the digital version: get in the photo booth, throw in 2 Euros, wait till the signal lamp lights up, smile and then wait for the flash!

Afterwards you just have to wait for 5 minutes and there you go: four classic black and white photos! ATTENTION: Not every photo booth has a signal lamp!

Here are the results:

You find these photo booths in London, Cologne, Florence, Hamburg, Dresden, Vienna, Leipzig, and most of them in Berlin. Here you will find maps with the locations of these photo booths in several cities. For more information about the Photoautomat check out this website!

Should you ever have the chance to take some pictures with one of these photo booths, then I recommend you do so – it’s definitely worth it!

    Fresh from the Lab: 1990

    A weekend without a lomowalk seems bad, at least for me. One Saturday morning, I decided to join my friends in their lomowalk. It was all cloudy at first but it didn't stop me from going out and walking. I brought my new Nikon FM2 and some expired rolls, just to test my camera. Was it just me being sleepy, or was my Nikon FM2 acting up? My photos turned out grainy, pale, and, in my opinion, looking so 1990s?

    A Salute to the Masters: R.I.P. (A Tribute to George Krause)

    This article is dedicated to the multifaceted American photographer George Krause and to his series depicting funeral monuments realized between 1962 and 1963. I was able to know about this series thanks to an important essay on photography written by former Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) Director of Photography, John Szarkowski. For this tribute, I loaded my trusty Praktica camera with a roll of Ilford film and took a series of photos in the Monumental Cemetery in my city, Como. Take a look!

    A Salute to the Masters: D-Day in Como? (A Tribute to Robert Capa)

    This article is dedicated to one of the most important masters of photography, Robert Capa. Capa is well known for his photos of war, from the famous image of the Republican Spanish soldier collapsing backwards after being fatally shot to his images taken in Indochina. He was also a co-founder of the famous Magnum Photo Agency, the first cooperative agency for freelance photographers worldwide. For this article, I took advantage of a rare event held in my city, Como, some weeks ago: a military drill for civil protection purposes.

    A Salute to the Masters: Un Paese, August 2014 (A Tribute to Paul Strand)

    This is a tribute to a founding father of photography, the American photographer Paul Strand. In 1955, he released ​a book about Luzzara, a small town in central Italy, in collaboration with the famous neo-realist screenwriter Cesare Zavattini. To pay homage to this great artist, this summer I personally went to Luzzara to take a series of photos that shows the changes in this little town 60 years after the work of Strand was published.
