Description

Show me your pictures, and I’ll tell you where you were! The new series Berlin Stories presents visual essays about and from Berlin-the city of art, fashion, parties, and many nations. You’ll find all genres of photography here, from classic street photography to personal sketches to staged portrait series. In a handy pocket-sized format, we’re building a whole library of images of the capital, taken by the most prominent photographers working in the city today.Volume two plunges headlong into life: specifically, Ed Broner’s nightlife, which is presented here in a kind of photo album-cum-journal. The artist, who usually spends his time painting large, very colorful canvases, has reduced his visual vocabulary to a democratic black-and-white. The brilliant lights of clubs, their outlandish guests, other artists in their studios, eccentric old cars, nude girls, amusing graffiti-everything is equal here in this very personal narrative of sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll, of macho guys and celebrities, and the fa├žades of buildings and people. It is a cynical, atmospherically intoxicating commentary on the desire for and addiction to pleasure, the presentation of luxury labels, and a selfie culture in love with details.
