As spring slowly pushes back the cold and ice of winter and the city begins to warm up, we realise – as we do every year around this time – that Berlin is not as grey and colourless as we experienced over the past few months. Whether or not the colours of the city sparkle quite as brightly in reality as they do in the photographs of Marcus Heiderich is another question!
In his collection “Color Berlin” we see our city transformed through his work into a place of vibrant striking colours…not unlike the paint-job on the corridors of the new-look Circus Hostel. You can see the full collection of “Color Berlin” on Marcus Heiderich’s page on the Behance network, and you can see more examples of his work, from photography to music, on his website.
Elsewhere on the web there are many great images of Berlin, from the artistic expression of weirdandwired on flickr and Berlin street art on fensterzumhof, to the trip down memory lane as the New York Times compares street scenes from before the Berlin Wall came down to twenty years after it fell.
