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!

    amazing sense of style…
    and his profession…constructor…sounds so mysterious and charming in this context :)

    Wow! What a nice suit! Just the shoes are a bit strange…? Or is it the highwater-trousers? don´t know…..

    Toll – die Männer werden immer mutiger in Sachen Outfit. Und da sieht man: auch bei C&A kann man einen guten Anzug erstehen (o.k. die vor 30 Jahren waren zugegebenermaßen stylisher als die aus den letzten Kollektionen…)
