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!

    Unlike greenland, with it’s crazy opposite name.

    I enjoy the At Home series :)
