A night stroll at Wriezener Bahnhof

I always per­ceived the stretch of land between Ost­bahnhof and Warschauer Straße always as a no-man’s-land. The part that is loc­ated south of the S-Bahn tracks – mostly because the East Side Gal­lery is more a tour­ist spot than a place of daily life – is as alien to me as as the north­ern part, that is dom­in­ated by ware­houses, hard­ware and cent­ral mar­kets. If it wasn’t for Berg­hain I might have never noticed the strange isol­a­tion of this small inner-city island that was built at the his­tor­ical site of the former Wriezener Bahnhof and its tracks. Always won­der­ing what might be stored in there, it takes a couple of minutes to pass these depots of innu­mer­able miles of shelving. I still remem­ber this late sum­mer week­end in 2010 quite well, when we left the club at dawn, climbed up to the roof of one of the ware­houses and sat there to enjoy the first warm shafts of sun­light. We stayed for quite some time and were not bothered by any­one, let alone the own­ers or the police, simply because there wasn’t a soul in sight.

Hav­ing had my cam­era with me whilst on my way to a con­cert, I recently took the oppor­tun­ity to cap­ture the nearly deser­ted, yet well lit and oddly calm scenery that evolved on a Wed­nes­day late evening.

  1. These seem to be pho­tos of the METRO car park.
