I spent three nights (and early mornings) at the bar Trinkteufel in Kreutzberg, observing and speaking to people in the bar. Late the first night I met this tough and hard looking man, who looked like a gangster, and everyone was afraid of (me too). We ended up talking, and he told me the story of his life, and about how he had lost almost everything in war and about his struggle to get back on his feet. The two following nights I went back, and got to know him and the bar even better. These six pictures show some of the people I met at Trinkteufel a warm week in the month of July 2016.
Thank you for a great week and a fine arrangement of the workshop.
I´ve got so many insights, and learned a lot about myself and my photography during this past week, and I am filled with inspiration to keep on working. It was also great to meet all the other participants.
I truly appreciate the engagement of Mr Ackerman in everybody’s progress, who cared to give honest feedback to our work and also by for example bringing books for everyone. I also appreciated the guest lecturers, who all brought dynamism and inspiration to the workshop. I also very much appreciated the presence and interplay of Michael Grieves.
