Sommernacht is a collection of street photography shots taken at numerous outdoor events in Berlin beginning spring/summer 2015.
Berlin is the hedonistic capital of the world. It has a spirit of freedom and rebellion to it, which is unmatched in any other city around the world. Its various cultural, artistic, social, and musical movements make it so unique. As diverse as these subcultures may seem, they all have one thing in common: the people’s urge to break free from established rules, the revolutionary spirit of a generation of idealists and dreamers, who want to live a life free of restrictions.
Rebels wearing sunglasses and glitter, latex and leather, they all want to live their life to the fullest and not worry about tomorrow, emerging fully into the moment. During the warm months of spring and summer, people from all backgrounds and ages come together, strangers become friends, dancing through the streets of Berlin side by side, united through music, laughter, and sunshine.
It is this very feeling of freedom, playfulness, and unrestraint, that I intend to depict in Sommernacht.
