We speak to Frank Machalowski @framafo winner in our #architecture #photocontest #photography #London

I’m Frank Machalowski, born in Berlin and live and work in Leipzig today. After studying Economics in Berlin and applying myself to various trades I work as a freelance photographer and artist since 2011. I first got into photography as a hobby and at the beginning I was mainly into digital photography, but then I started shifting back to film as I found the charming characteristics and atmosphere of film photography to be more fascinating. Today i even develop and print the most of my photos by my own. My major area of interest is the city and its immediate surroundings.
About the image ‘Hanover’:
This photograph is a part of my ongoing series ‘multiexpo’. For this series I photograph landmarks and architecturally interesting buildings as multiple exposures. It launched 2012 in Berlin, my hometown for 40 years, but then I extended this kind of photography to other German and European cities. For this series I use exclusive analogue film material in both dimensions (35mm and 6×6) and only b&w. The building on the picture is the administration building of a major German bank in the inner city of Hanover.
This is the third time that i submitted a photograph to a LPF competition. I love the city of London and I love photography. I travelled last October to London and take some pictures for my series there. A beautiful place for architecture photographing. I think London is becoming more and more important a place for the international photography scene.
