Bringing the city’s history to life.

Internationally renowned photographer Michael Wesely captures time and life in his photographs. In Doubleday, he explores the archaeological dimensions of photography by superimposing his own photographs precisely over historical views of nineteenth and twentieth century buildings in Berlin. This allows him to leap from the past to the present: Nineteenth century flaneurs on Alexanderplatz encounter today’s tourists, ruins become visible beneath the reconstructed copies of the buildings, and a park appears in place of Monbijou Palace.
