What we see, what we do and who we meet: it usually happens right in our neighborhood. These little randoms make up most of our lives here in Berlin. With every little piece of the puzzle we hope to get closer to portraying an authentic picture of the city.

Hey friends! It is time for the next round of SAMMELKARTEN! I think you know the pro­ced­ure by now: you can get a pack­age of beau­ti­ful hand­made mini-prints of my pho­to­graphs. If you are lucky you will even find a “print”-card in your pack­age which will get you a signed print of my work. All you have to

Bar & Food Night at Neue Heimat

20.10.2014 · No comments

To trans­form an old rail­way sta­tion into an urban space for con­certs, street food and hap­pen­ings of diverse nature is a very good idea in and of itself already. But the Neue Heimat venue has actu­ally also brought life into an almost for­got­ten area of the city, too (for­got­ten by me, mostly). Every street between Warschauer

Urgh, Ber­lin Fest­ival. It’s one of those events where all people go “uhh­h­h­h­h­h­h­hhh yeah, I’ve got like, super-free tickets, so I’m going for a minute or two even though it’s like, super-shitty”. Ahahahaha. I love that. Then again, that’s what people in Ber­lin usu­ally say about any big name party, so I tried to detach myself from the pre­ju­dice and enjoy my

Open Your City: 5 Hotspots In Berlin-Wedding

06.09.2014 · One comment

Wed­ding — hot or luke­warm at best? The sweet thing about the typ­ical com­pet­i­tion between the vari­ous Ber­lin dis­tricts is that nobody can ever be a win­ner. If it’s too cool, it’s already out (Pren­zlauer Berg), and if you’re it’s best kept secret, nobody will make the effort (Moabit). Wed­ding seems to be the middle-ground: while it’s more chal­len­ging to find

After my four month trip to South­east Asia a couple of years ago, I swore to myself that I would never see another water­fall in my life again. Usu­ally, the hik­ing tours there all take you up a hill or a moun­tain, and once you have dragged your sweat­ing ass to the top, a water­fall awaits your view. It’s all nice and

If you are plan­ning to start doing pho­to­graphy there seem to be dozens of tech­nical hurdles and an over­load of people telling you this and that. In this field almost every per­son has a clear opin­ion about the gear you should use or motifs that are worth being cap­tured. If you try do learn pho­to­graphy via magazines

“Titel 172 — Prahlerei ist die beste Ausrede auf dem Acker” — exhibition review

25.07.2014

What is the defin­i­tion of an artist? Is pro­du­cing art mainly about tal­ent, artistic tech­nique or cre­ativ­ity or isn’t it rather about being able to copy oth­ers ideas without get­ting caught? These and other ques­tions are treated by the group exhib­tion entitled “Titel 172 — Prahlerei ist die beste Aus­rede auf dem Acker” that fea­tures vari­ous art­works

“Hundekopf” or how to explore Berlin with a camera

24.07.2014 · 2 comments

Patrick, of berlin-based pho­to­graphy blog Radi­ant Flux, has thought of a way to explore the city that would both expand his hori­zon and make for inter­est­ing pho­to­graphy. You can see all of his Hun­dekopf pic­tures on his blog. I invited Patrick to tell his approach to the pro­ject here and to share his per­spect­ive on Ber­lin in the future

Every year, we post at least one pic­ture of the Ber­liner Tour d’Eiffel (see here and here and I think there were more but I can’t find them) . Le Fernse­hturm, as it’s called, is still a heartwearm­ing sym­bol of home. Although it has not a power­ful WIFI that con­nects auto­mat­ic­ally, I still con­sider every sum­mer night with a glimpse of it as

CSD Kreuzberg 2014 Recap

17.07.2014

The thing with ana­log pho­to­graphy is that the full rolls some­times live and die in my back­pack without ever being noticed. That’s why it can take a little longer than usual for me to develop them and finally real­ize “oh, so THAT’s what I for­got writ­ing about”. So my cov­er­age of the Kreuzberg CSD might be a little late, but it’s

Mmaah: Korean BBQ in Neukölln

Every­body loves Korean food! This is a known fact! And another fact is that I am the per­son that loves it the most, which is why any new Korean joint in town is already a favor­ite of mine. Unfor­tu­nately, Mmaah is a little on the off-side. It’s between Hasen­heide, Columbiabad and Tem­pel­hof, sure, but at the wrong entrance of

In a won­der­ful twist of events, Pan­nier­straße has not suc­cumbed to the rising num­ber of thirsty people who want edgy bars lin­ing their streets. For­tu­nately, instead Pan­nier­straße has been over­thrown by an explo­sion of spe­cial delis, bis­tros and res­taur­ants, of which most aren’t even open at night.
