On May 1st this year Frank, Philipp and I joined the Maifest and had a nice time walking the streets of Kreuzberg together. Just as last year once again the folklore event was a great opportunity to do some street photography. Enjoy a selection of pictures I took this year:
As mentioned at the beginning of the year, I intended to take the “60-second slices of present”-project further and beyond the city of Berlin where it all had started some three years ago.

As mentioned in my previous post I spend Easter time in Rome this year. I had a very particular image in mind I wanted to take – the masses of people gathering on Saint Peter’s Square for Pope Francis’s Urbi et Orbi Message. So this is my selection of shots I took in and around … Read more
