Gentrification is like climate change. Its so obvious that everybody talks about it all the time but nothing happens. That leads to people getting annoyed by the topic, so they eventually start to ignore it. Gentrification is in the media, in politics, in rap-songs and on house-walls but most of the time the debates exclude
Our man Jan Herdlicka continues his charming project “Sammelkarten”. I think you know the procedure by now: you can get a package of beautiful handmade mini-prints of Jans photographs. If you are lucky you even find a “print”-card in your package, that gets you a nice print! All you have to do is like his page and write him!
After spending half a year in Malmö, sweden our friend Jan Herdlicka is back in town. He starts the year with the third edition of his Sammelkarten. If you dont know about them, here is the deal. Jan prints a selection of his photographs in 6×4 cm and glues them on paperboard. He does it with really simple
(Jan Herdlicka is a constant contributor to our site. We love his analog black and white approach and embrace this quiet but powerful series he took in the Grunewald. Read his thoughts about it and like his page!) Although the photographs were taken in immediate nearness to big cities, they seemingly show impalpable places. The eye seeks
When we told our friends that we decided to go to “Südgelände” nobody knew what we were talking about. It doesnt matter how long you live in this city, your knowledge and your interest will likely go as far as the Ring and rarely beyond. And as a matter of fact Südgelände is located a few meters
The U-Bahn-System shapes a lot of places in our city. It has its own architectural rules and often it doesnt care about beauty. Most U-Bahn stations are cold and pragmatic. People rush through them. But nobody can doubt that they create a very unique atmosphere. You go down, into the Untergrund. Jan Herdlicka, whom you may know
Twice a year Berlin falls into a prosecco sipping, highheels rocking trance which some call Fashion Week. The deal is that everybody is just talking about how totally unimportant Berlin is fashionwise but how fresh the parties are. What can we say? We dont really care. Sometimes we love ourselves some superficial spectacle but right now we
You probably remember our friend Lukas Fischer whose impressive “Gropiusstadt”-Series we posted in October. With the support of the Goethe Institut he and other master students of the Kunsthochschule Weißensee spent one month in Bangalore. Fueled by economic growth the city is changing enormously fast. Lukas chose to document the life in the
A while ago we introduced you to the work of our friend Jan Herdlicka. Today we want to make sure that you take a look at his newest project because you can actually get something out of it.. Being some kind of photo-blog we are deeply involved in the internets never ending flood of images. Of course
I have been to Copenhagen twice before this trip but its always something else if you explore a city with the perspective of someone who is actually living there. My dear firend Niels moved there after he had lived in berlin for quite a while. He found a small beautiful room in Nørrebro which is the multi-cultural, streetart-clustered, well-designed espresso-bar
Sometimes you need to escape. It does not matter where you live and what you do. One should always take the freedom to take a break and leave his or her daily routine. (I know that this is a very student/freelancing thing to say, but fuck it). Especially if you got a berlin routine or “Alltag” how germans
Today we want to introduce you to the photography of our friend Jan Herdlicka. We met each other at university and one of our first conversations was about his passion for the japanese photographer Daido Moriyama and his uncompromising street-photography. Like him Jan is a sensitive and silent observer in the streets of the loud and busy city.
