Strolling down the streets of Berlin.
Just every day life.
24 hours Berlin. 36 photographers.
On the streets, in living rooms, clubs, hospitals, airports, cafes - you name it. I choose to stay close to one of the cities most discussed, loved and hated places - Kottbusser Tor.The book was published by Steidl
and an 24 hour long exhibition showing the printed sheets took place at C/O Berlin gallery.
With the right of moving and residing in every member state of the EU many romanian families came to Berlin trying to make a living. Anyhow. Some of them found shelter in an abandonned garden allotment but the place turned out to be more garbage dump and construction site then one you would like to call home.
After a couple of weeks ignoring the untenable situation the city of Berlin started to remove rooftops from the bigger buildings before finally demolishing all of them, making space for the new built A100 highway.

Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan is also known as windy city, just as Chicago is. It is in fact rapidly growing, mainly due to Aserbaijans booming gas and oil businesses wich are more or less all linked to the presidents family and relatives.

Today Azerbaijan ranks 163 out of 180 countries in Reporters without borders World Press freedom index.
The rough and vast mountain ranges of the Caucasus mountains are home to an animal, wich only can be found here. The caucasian capricorn, also known as Daghestan-Tur, is the final aim for hunters from the western world, paying loads of money for the exhausting journey into the wild.
Whatever one may think about hunting, the scenery is stunning.
Life´s a ride
