Berlin On the Way to Heaven

I want to show the German Capital as a naked landscape where time has come to a stop, where you see the world without people. Why Berlin? I am often there and know its orientation. Its story interests me. This project means much to me because in our world today we are surrounded by such a lot of things that sometimes we forget how the world really is. Through my photography I try to show this to the people, from my very own point of view. In my pictures I want to go beyond any touristic or usual approach that aims on demonstrating a happy world. It doesn’t mean that I want to show a sad world, but a silent one whose images enter our body and make us meditate: transmitting emotions as if we were landing on another planet. There has to be much melancholy and solitude, grasping how our ears listen to the wind and the skin smells temperature. I want to bring to light photography that seems a painting.
