I am continuing my trip around the world even though I’ve been back for two years. The mission is to avoid as many winter-y days in Berlin as possible. Thankfully, every now and then, it’s actually made possible. A couple of weeks ago I left on the first really cold day of the year to experience Phuket,
Rooms have a particular effect on us. They guide our eyes and ears, thus leading our movement through built space. I am obsessed with spatial impacts and have a soft spot for the discovery of spatial pecularities and oddities. It occurred to me a while ago that a particularly peculiar spatial impact emanates from predator compounds.
People tend to forget very often that FindingBerlin was once created as a showcase for the photography within our group of friends. While we’ve extended the philosophy to include more than just our own circle of friends, we’re still, essentially, just that: a crew that likes to take pictures, travel the world and discover new places in
In continuation of the Raumverdichtungen series, Jan Herdlicka visited places you come across everyday. In his technical process the obvious dimensional characteristics blur out and only a fraction is left. With this he is questioning the process of memory and the character of the structures surrounding us.
I’ve visited Amsterdam plenty of times. It’s a lovely and visually very exciting place abroad. It’s simply beautiful, and the Dutch are always great. I have not had a bad experience in Amsterdam yet (except for that one super-authentic Chinese restaurant which was a bit too authentic for my taste, urghh) and I hope it stays that way. The
I know it’s not allowed to take pictures during take off and landing, thank you very much. But sometimes I just can’t resist, even if I get verbally beaten up by the stewards for it. Especially when returning to Berlin, landing in Tegel is always exciting. If your seat is right, you might just get a glimpse over
You won’t need to travel far when you live in Berlin, as the world is usually at your doorstep (probably hungover, trying to get inside your house for a clean bed and a glass of water). Last weekend, the Yeni Raki “Spirit of Istanbul” Night Bazaar at Arena Club proved once again that you can experience first
Many people are currently considering their options in face of the coming winter: should I stay or should I go? After my third winter in Berlin, I was so traumatized that I left for 8 whole month, always traveling with the sun. Those lucky ones who can just return to their warm countries because they were only here for the
Although the city was full of Halloween partys last night, this one is surely a speciality: the 21st Halloween Alleycat stays on top of the list of awesome events! The participants were not only dressed to impress, but also ready to run the race. More than 100 riders sped through the cold night on their bikes
Tempelhof was once the most advanced airport of Europe. The roaring 20ies in Berlin — the 3rd largest city in the world — made it happen. Aviation at its finest. In the darker times that followed, the building was extended into a monumental craft of insanity by the Nazis. Facist architecture — that imposing neoclassicism, the sheer
On my recent travels to New Zealand I spent most of my time driving through the country and down the picturesque coastlines. I had not intended to spend much time in the cities — there’s enough of them on our little continent here anyway — but I was wrong to underestimate the urban parts of the country. When you think about a holiday
