No windows, tiles all around, a large sink, lots of storage space and a door that can be locked from the inside make the small room situated to the right of the entrance to WhateverLab the perfect place for our Fotolab/Chemielab.

If you are interested in developing your own film, in exchanging ideas with fellow photo nerds or just trying out stuff, join us at one of our irregularly regular meetups [de] or subscribe to our Fotolab mailing list. Most of us are amateurs btw., so there's no reason to be shy, even - or especially - if you are a bloody beginner! :)

For all soup lovers, there's also a (albeit very irregularly updated) Fotolab soup. If you're more of a watcher than a doer, just following it will be fine. If you'd like to contribute too, you're very welcome to request to join! (Plz ask Kay for help if you have any trouble joining.)


Wöchentliche Treffen

If you plan to attend one of our Fotolab meetings for the first time, it's a good idea to get in touch with us via the mailing list (see above) beforehand, to make sure that there will be someone around.
