Berlin Unlike, 2011
Kreuzberg’s gritty Görlitzer Park is the last place you’d expect to enjoy a nice round of golf, but the Isa Mitz café plays host to a unique version of the gentleman’s game. Down in the basement is an 18-hole miniature golf course painted in lurid flourescents, illuminated by Ultra Violet lights.
The Style King, 2011
The most significant European city of the Twentieth Century, Berlin has become a cultural hub at the heart of the continent. Since the fall of the Wall, immigrants have flooded in with dreams of space, freedom and laid-back living, and the German capital is now home to artists, musicians and other creatives. Hot on their heels come waves of tourists with a thirst for history and hedonism, ready to hit world-famous museums and clubs, and to unearth their own hidden gems.
Slow Travel Berlin, 2011
Maren Winkler is an amateur photographer who moved to Berlin in 2000. Escaping from small town life in Western Germany, she “wanted to live in a place which I wouldn’t ever know by heart – no matter how long I lived in it.” Working as a medical doctor at Charité Berlin’s Centre for Stroke Research, Winkler spends her free time documenting the details of her life on photographic film. Her book A Passion for Plastic explores deserted scenes from her adopted home, recorded using vintage Bakelite cameras. “I am a nerd,” she freely admits, “I do benefit from the fact that nerds are more respected these days, but seriously - I’ve always been one.”
