  • Maco TS Eagle 400 AQS: A Graphic Novel

    Maco TS Eagle 400 AQS: A Graphic Novel

    This must be one of the craziest monochromatic emulsions I came across with. Not only the title is a promise of an adventure, but the pictures are as well. In most black and white films that I have used, objects in the distance become darker. With the Eagle, the darkness flies away. In fact, it's the other way around. The further the object is away from the lens, the brighter it is.

    Astrid Kirchherr and the Beatles

    In the early sixties, Astrid Kirchherr and friends regularly visited the Kaiserkeller Club in Hamburg to see a band that referred themselves to as the Beatles perform, not knowing they would one day become one of the most famous bands in the world. It was before Ringo Starr was even part of the group.

    General Photo Black and White Surveillance Film: You Are So Dirty!

    You are a dirty film, very dirty! Aren’t you ashamed of yourself? Exposing yourself blank in front of all those people? And look at all the grain in your face and on your body! I cannot leave you for a bit and really, I don’t want to!

    One Man's Trash Bin Is Another Man's Pinhole Camera

    The employees of the garbage collection in Hamburg often see their city from another point of view. They know every single backyard and every secret corner. Now some of them tried to capture these points of view in photos, using dumpsters as larger-than-life pinhole cameras!

    Photoautomat in Hamburg

    A wonderful discovery of the wonderful black and white Photoautomat at Feldstraße in Hamburg. I guess you all know those old instant photo booths where you could do 4 different snapshots (originally for using those pictures in your passport) or get as many of your friends into the cabin and try to get all the heads on one picture.

    ALFO Professional Slide Film: Digging Deep into History

    In my quest to find films everybody forgot about, I found the ALFO Professional Slide Film. Never really heard about that one, so I started my CSI engine. So this review is rather about the way one researches about the history of gone film-gems than the look of its emulsion.

    Love at First Lomo: How I Fell in Love with My Lomo Fisheye

    This is how my Lomo-love began: It was a cold and rainy winters day in Hamburg, December 2010. Shopping was unsuccessful; I was annoyed of the weather... When suddenly I saw this glittering, sparkling golden treasure: A Lomo Fisheye One covered in golden glitter! You made my day, little Fisheye!

    Fischmarkt St.Pauli

    "Frrrrrrrrrrriiiiiiiiiiiiiiischer Fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiisch, Leudddddddddde", "Schoooooooooooooooooooooooooookolade" and "Käääääääääääääääääääääässe ohne Ende". You don't have to understand a word, but you might get a feeling for the volume of the vendors at the fish market in Hamburg. It don't matter what you buy it is all about the experience of shopping.

    On Tour with Fettes Brot - LomoAmigos live on stage

    It's quite hard to imagine German music culture without Fettes Brot. After their big breakthrough in the early 90s with their well-known song "Nordish by Nature", they now play in the biggest halls in front of 12,000 fans with up to 90 gigs a year! Björn Beton fell in love with the Fisheye 2 and documented daily tour routine with his buddies Doktor Renz and König Boris.

    Sunny Days with Expired Fuji Superia 1600

    Some years ago, when I was still new to Lomography, I had some rolls of Fuji Superia 1600. In the best Lomo-manner, I didn't care about any rules and I shot them on a sunny day during my summer holidays.

    The St. Pauli Elbe Tunnel also known as the old Elbe tunnel with its approx 425 meters long, tiled tunnels invites you to a journey into the past. Ever since a native of Hamburg showed me the tunnel, I have visited this impressive site on my visits to Hamburg for walking and shooting.

    Strand Pauli Beach Club (Hamburg)

    When you live in a big city without any access to a beach you probably notice the beach clubs that grow like mushrooms in summer. Be it on top of a parking lot or at the most busy street in your town.

    Ferry harbour cruise - Hamburg

    Hamburg, Landungsbrücken. Men with blue hats advertise the “Große Hafenrundfahrt” (harbour cruise). Their shouts ring in my ears while I make my way to the ferry pier. I don’t want to pay a lot of money for a harbour cruise when I can have one without stupid cock-and-bull stories.

    The "Michel" (Hamburg)

    The Michel, actually St.Michaelis Kirche, is Hamburgs landmark. And it is also the most famous church in the city. With the biggest clock in Germany. Everybody knows this church and you can always see it when strolling through the main parts of the city.

    Secret Place - Sandtorhöft

    The harbor of Hamburg is a very busy place and I don't mean the ships that sail down the Elbe. I speak of the millions of tourists that pass by the Landungsbrücken everyday; that stroll alongside the most touristic part of the harbor. I love this place because it is never the same and it changes with every ship that enters the harbor.

    Ohlsdorf cemetery (Hamburg)

    Have you ever been to a cemetery where busses drive? A cemetery with its own bus line? You will shake your head and say: “No, I’ve never been to such a place. In fact, a cemetery should be a place to find peace, a place where no sounds from the street reach your ears. There should be silence to think, to mourn, to find inner peace.”

    St. Nikolai Memorial, Hamburg

    Like many churches in Germany, St. Nikolai has suffered bomb attacks during the Second World War. It remained a ruin after the war to remind following generations that war is the most terrible thing mankind can do. The church was once one of the seven main churches in the city area of Hamburg although it now is a memorial.

  • Hamburger Hafengeburtstag

    Hamburger Hafengeburtstag

    On May 7, 1189 the people of Hamburg were guaranteed an exemption from import duties on the Elbe up to the North Sea. This is the birthday of the “door to the world”, the port of Hamburg. Since then the Hafengeburtstag is celebrated on the 7th of May every year since 1977 (or around the 7th because the festivities are always during the weekend). Over the years the festivities that take place during the three day period have been extended enormously.

    My Favourite Spot for Sunny Days: Altes Land

    So here's my favourite spot for sunny days especially in spring: "Altes Land", an area alongside the Elbe River near Hamburg. It is the biggest, contiguous fruit orchard in Central Europe and really beautiful during apple and cherry blossom season.
