The French fashion designer's influential photobook capturing the street style and life of Berlin. 'For two years Hedi Slimane roamed through Berlin`s districts, from Wannsee to Warschauer Strasse, from Kreuzberg to Alexanderplatz and Karl-Marx-Allee. The result is Berlin, created as a Residency Project for the Kunst-Werk Studio. Slimane lived in the German capital from 2000 to 2002 and photographed his surroundings, his friends and the places where he happened to end up. His photographs are powerful images that make up a wordless account of his travels off the beaten path.' (from the publisher's description).
