During the last weeks I spent long nights viewing and ordering my messed up photo archive to pick out proper shots for my new website. In that process I found quite a lot of old and interesting photos I almost forgot about, like the following series of graffiti messages I started to shoot in early 2007.

Back then, my attention got from the highly visible graffiti pieces and bombings to the small messages, quotes and pieces of wisdom which you can almost always find scattered across the city. They are footnotes next to the bombings, written on a train or painted down on a rooftop. They may be stupid sometimes, obviously pointless or simply ironic, but often they give you something to think about and let you laugh out loud.

  1. How awesome – I’m shitting my pants at the moment because these photos are so terrific!!! They remind me of my favourite deli in New York where I always stuff a lot of pastrami slices in the mouth of my boyfriend, who is a transsexual performance dj. Berlin is soo cheap and the people from here are so poor, I’m having a massive blast…

  2. Die Fotos sind wirklich sehr ansprechend und ästhetisch reizvoll mit einer Prise gewürzelt geworden. Genau deswegen bin ich nach Berlin gekommen. Das ist Urbanität pur! Dafür leben die Bürger dieser Stadt. Weiter so!
