history lessons in the streets of Istanbul at dawn. despite arriving here super late yesterday and only sleeping for a few hours, I just had to get out before sunrise to have the city for myself. pulsating with history at every step, Istanbul was conquered, fought over and rebuilt many times over the centuries. one of the most fascinating places I ever got to visit. #istanbul

no slowing down i kept returning to this place during the last few weeks, always unhappy with the shot I previously got. either the sky looked super boring or the birds would decide not to show up, I just couldn’t get it right. headed to Istanbul tomorrow so I‘m even more happy to cross this shot off my list finally. here‘s a little series with some previous attempts and different angles. let me know which shot you‘d pick, from 1 to 6. #berlin

This is Berlin’s most photographed landmark. How can you give it a new, fresh spin? For me, the Brandenburger Tor is at its most majestic at dawn, in solitude, with zero people around. I shot it through this bullet hole in shattered glass to add a visual story – an edge. This month, I’m shooting the world around me through objects and other interesting textures, in partnership with @samsungmobile. #withgalaxy Anzeige

This has got to be one of the toughest places that I’ve taken photos at so far. Not because it was particularly hard to photograph, but because people wouldn’t let us into the building while the light kept getting worse. I guess the residents were tired of some other photographers trying to lock this shot down before me. But we made it! At the end, we left with a pretty decent shot. Persistence always wins.

dreams from the past ever since I started working as a photographer, Istanbul has been one of the cities I visited the most. it is the most inspiring one for sure and I can’t wait to be back next week to work on some new projects. here are a few pictures from my last visit back in December. 1, 2 or 3 which one would you pick? #istanbul

Taking a peek at the sun rising behind Oberbaumbrücke through the „curtains“ of some construction site. I used to do stuff like this all the time: Climb up onto the metal bars of the scaffold, find my way through a labyrinth of construction material, not knowing where I’d get out and then, finally, turning my head towards a view as breathtaking as this one here. After a phase of doing this a lot, I moved on to different subjects, but when the opportunity presented itself again a few days ago, I went for it and loved it. Can’t say I didn’t feel a tiny bit nostalgic about the old days and might go back for more...

surface tension always when a hard rain descends on Berlin, the whole city feels it. traffic stands still, puddles get deceptively deep and the yellow metro trains pop even more against the greyish rainy sky. 1, 2 or 3, which one would you pick? #berlin

unforgettable here’s one of the very special moments I captured while in Chicago last month. not even sure why I didn’t share that series yet but looking at Chicago under a thick layer of fog was something I won’t soon forget. #chicago

the times we had #tb to this little alley in Barcelona that leads up straight to the beach, to old-school tapas joints and fresh laundry strung from rusted balconies. yes, I really miss this city today and can‘t wait to be back for a short holiday in the fall. 1, 2 or 3 what‘s your favorite one of this set? #barcelona
