Dit is meen Berlin
Honest moments from unfiltered Berlin.
“Dit is meen Berlin” is a collection of images that simply reflect my Berlin, as I perceived it, in my time when I always carried my camera with me while walking through different districts and simply documented them in their being.
I grew up in Wilmersdorf and Wedding and later moved to the south of Berlin. Since I spent a lot of time in Berlin Mitte when I was still active in Berlin’s nightlife, the south was the perfect balance. Quiet, little noise and above all green.
My goal was to capture Berlin at a time when many parts of the population are switching to the digital medium and
analog photography is becoming rarer and rarer, but is still imperishable for me.

This picture was first called "Old Couple" but I have renamed when I met the gentleman again and he told me his story after I had given him the photo.
