Berlin is the special place we call our home. While travelling the continents and discovering the world, we are constantly stumbling over cities that somehow remind us of our beloved home far, far away. This is about Finding Berlin in the distance. Because home is where your heart is.
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
Getting out of this Berlin winter mess is the number one theme everybody talks about right now. It could be easy to join the party but we rather want to be your ambassadors for the sun with this post. Last november we got invited to visit the caribbean island Curacao together with Clemens of iGNANT, Katja
You might remember our visit to Stockholm last summer. It have been some great days with our very good friends Robert & Thatsanie who live in Stockholm and showed us around the city. Next to the many pictures we took, I made a little film about one day in the city and some locations we’ve been visiting
Berlin can be a big load of distractions. Even if you’re just trying to have fun, there’s always something else that wants to catch your attention. A phone call, an Instagram picture, a new love interest, my favorite band is playing live, that exhibition I can’t miss, a spontaneous rave in an overfrozen U-Bahn station. But it’s not the size
My Lightroom library just told me that I have more than 30.000 pictures on my drive. I collect them since I started taking digital pictures back in 2002. Before a couple of months it was the first time I actually printed out 500 of them and had the chance to finally look at them outside a computer monitor. It was love! Now
This is — by far — going to be the most unpopular post in our abroad category because it makes you want to escape even more from the dreading bad weather winter season. We all know that Berlin winters are cruel and merciless. All that said I’m apologizing for having just returned from the most awesome summer vacation ever.
When recently Elisa and I went to Kassel, we took this opportunity obviously only because of documenta – but I'll spare with you any remarks, pictures or even critique. However, after I was quickly bored and tired by the masses, I gained interest in other details that documenta and Kassel yielded.
Many people have been comparing Budapest to Berlin recently. Generally, the East of Europe seems to be in the rise when it comes to underdog parties, creative movements and — as always — affordable lifestyles. All aside political and economical issues, Budapest is always mentioned when people talk about how the “scene” is moving away from Berlin as soon
They say: as soon as Berlin is choking with people the avant-garde will move away to different places, most likely the Eastern parts of Europe. While rent and density of people is rising here, there’s still a lot to do over there! From Berlin to Budapest could be the footpath for many leisure-expats, club-freaks, artists and
Berlins history extends through the whole of Germany. Sometimes the leftovers of a collective past can still be found all over the country. In this case, Prora makes quite an impression. Fellow photographer Andreas Bohlender generously let us publish his editorial and beautiful pictures of the abandoned Nazi holiday camp that never was. Thank you for
The Gängeviertel in Hamburg has produced a lot of media coverage in the last couple of years. The Gängeviertel used to describe the narrow alleys between densely built buildings in the old (and some new) parts of Hamburg. So narrow in fact that most of these quarters were torn down at the end of the 19th
When we travel, we don’t usually travel big. Instead, we try to focus on what’s “real” about a city, meaning we try to do the things that are of interest to us and want to avoid the conventional tourist traps. Not an easy task, to be honest, especially when you’re not off the beaten track. That’s
