A Half Century of Bowling Alley Design in Southern Germany Captured by Robert Gotzfried (10 pics)




German photographer  Robert Gotzfried  ( previously ) seeks out unique architecture for series that focus on one particular element of a culture or place. Previous projects have documented the pipe organs of 20 German Catholic churches , observed the creative construction of Cambodia’s roadside barber shops , and captured abandoned storefronts  that exist across Australia.

For the last few years Gotzfried has focused on photographing the design of bowling alleys and “Kegelbahnen” across Southern Germany, most of which exist from the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s. Kegeln is a German sport similar to bowling, however with smaller balls, only nine pins, and shortened lanes. The sport has fallen from popularity, and many of the photographed lanes’ quality has diminished with the times. You can see a larger selection of Gotzfried’s photographic projects on his website ,  Instagram , and Behance . (via This Isn’t Happiness )
