Berlin Stories 1: Ama Split & Riky Kiwy
(1000 items available)
The new series Berlin Stories presents visual essays about and from Berlin – the city of art, fashion, parties, and many nations. The first volume in the series is on French-Italian pair of photographers Ama Split and Riky Kiwy who wanted to depict the German capital differently when they began to photograph the individual stations of the Hundekopf, or “dog’s head", as Berliners like to call the Ringbahn – the train line that circles their city, outlining the shape of a dog’s head. They created portraits of various train stations, their people and surroundings. Here, a train stop becomes a neighbourhood; a snack bar, a meeting point; a plaza, a transit station. Over a period of six weeks the duo travelled the Ringbahn in a clockwise direction. One station, one roll of film per photographer, thirty-six shots per roll.
