Through my work, I explore social anthropological aspects of places juxtaposed with my own personal responses. It is from this viewpoint that I continue to investigate the banal, sublime and the overlooked, not as a documentary study in a purely transcriptive form, but as a way of further understanding my own distinct associations with the genius loci of a site.

Using the Mauerweg trail as my reference point, the scarred strip of land that encircles the city in which the Berlin wall once stood. This project is a result of walking this path that once symbolized the division of Europe. Through this somewhat nomadic journey, I started to uncover a different side of Berlin, a side of Berlin that was quiet and understated, one that I could relate to, like a psychological mirror, I could see elements of my own personality rooted deep within the landscape.
The selection of images showcased in this project are a poetic document of contemporary Berlin as it attempts to shape its future and they are also a portrait of myself. I tried to lose myself within this unfamiliar environment to gain clarity of Berlin and a better understanding of my work.
But you can’t get lost in Berlin; you always end up at a wall.
