juxtaposition- seat of the berlin trade and commerce chamber, of the 1950ies (West-Berlin), left, and the 1990ies (in fact 1997, Nicholas Grimshaw Architects). Soo much history!... the 50ies building shows the typical style the big german corporations adopted in the aftermath of Nazi-times, fit with “flying roofs” and easy-going slab, yet decorated with still “eminent” travertin stone, a peculiar mixture of the 40ies with the 50ies (which in Germany means a watershed). And then, in the 90ies, a turn around with great expectations, internationalisation, a british “high-tech” firm building a rather futurist Berlin stock-exchange (they know that!). Berlin, in it’s heyday, was the largest industrial city in Europe. With the handover to the far right in 1933 it was the beginning of the end. After half a century, the city is regaining some of it’s strength, but, in any circumstance, due to it’s international, now one would say, globalized activity and attraction! As is true for any other metropolis! On the day of the first visit of BJohnson to Berlin, I can only pledge, we are better together, not apart ! #jointpower#hightecharchitecture#modernerklassizismus#ihkberlin#fasanenstrasse#dasechteberlin#igberlin#visitberlin#berlintrip#nicholasgrimshawarchitects#stopbrexit
I took every shot in this series, except the last one, without getting recognized by the model.
When I'm shooting for a brand, on a concert or even when I'm just out for fun with friends. I often like the photos the most when no one actually recognizes that I took a photo. I didn't even look through the viewfinder or on the screen, because in that second someone noticed that a camera is pointing on him he automatically acts differently even when he doesn't want to.
The perfect view of Berlin from Drachenberg hill.
This location is highly recommend to visit in Berlin, especially in the morning or evening. With a binocular or a spyglass you could see one of the most beautiful panorama of the city.
