Berlin – Photography

“A way of certifying experience, taking photographs is also a way of refusing it — by limiting experience to a search for the photogenic, by converting experience into an image, a souvenir.”
On Photography – Susan Sontag

My first trip to Berlin was the first that I made by myself. Its purpose was to find locations to finish Iterance, but at the same time to know a little about the city. Well, “ich bin ein Berliner”! An amazing city with warm people, tons of culture and great bars. With my photos I tried to capture the feeling I had, not to convert the experience into a souvenir but to into memory of a dead past. Sure I took tourist photos, but I tried to avoid them as much as I could, assuming a point of view where the viewer could sense my experience
