Berlin in Pictures

I spent the last three days shooting in Berlin together with my friend Shak. We hit a lot of interesting – sometimes even eerie – locations and what can I say? It was awesome! Here are a few of the pictures, follow the links to see more:

Berlin Neon – on the way home one night, I noticed how the red neon signs contrasted with the deep blue sky. Just a few shots, but I like them.

Berlin Alexanderplatz – one of the important squares in the former eastern part of Berlin, I’ve been there for the first time back in 1987 and I love the TV tower.

Berlin Concrete – the Berlin Holocaust Memorial is a rather recent addition to Berlin. Planned by Peter Eisenmann, it features 2711 concrete blocks and I could spend hours exploring what the light does to the shapes and angles.

  1. I was in Berlin last year and made a point of going to the Holocaust Memorial for sunrise. Was there on my own and was very good for photography and to remember. Lovely crisp morning, with bright sunshine.
