Neue Schönhauser Straße: Peter


I’ve been looking for someone like Peter to photograph ever since I started taking street shots, but older gentlemen types aren’t as as easy to find in Berlin as in Milan or Paris, for instance. Peter is 83 years old and lives in Berlin-Köpenick. He’s now retired, but before the war he was trained as a chef at the Adlon Hotel here in Berlin. He told me that his house is filled with clothes, and that he changes his style every day. He also gave me this cute postcard to say thank you for the photo!

    I love how, even though these are all modern, fashionable women, you can still clearly tell their nationality by how they look. I am mpost impressed with the japanese lady’s style-very impressive

    Nice look…not too bulky, but still warm and simple. I don’t like the purse, though.
