A documentation of Berlin’s disappearing gambling dens by Danish-German photographer Anne Lass(Previously featured) Here’s how to get in touch with us). Lass lived in Berlin between 2007 and 2014. It was there that she developed a fascination with the city’s many gambling halls, visiting over 100 of approximately 500. The images are filled with leather sofas, dark corridors and vibrant colors. But even more than the environments themselves, Lass attempts to understand those who frequented them — their desire for a better life and the pursuit of (financial) happiness.
Over 80% have disappeared since the new legislation (many are depicted in this piece). “Triple Seven” is at once an investigation of the visual signs and symbols used to seduce as well as a photographic record of the undergoing gentrification.
