“Triple Seven” by Photographer Anne Lass

A documentation of Berlin’s disappearing gambling dens by Danish-German photographer Anne Lass (previously featured here). Lass lived in Berlin from 2007-2014. It was there that she developed a fascination with the city’s many gambling halls, visiting over 100 of approximately 500. The images feature leather sofas and dark corridors, radiant shapes and vibrant colours. 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.

Following new legislation, over 80% of them have already disappeared (many of them depicted in this work). “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. See more images from the project below or via independent photobook publisher Disko Bay.
